      Stan, Lisa Pelly & I and our dog friends Sally & Scout spent two days
      birding around the Wenas. We saw a total of 64 species, many year
      birds for us. Some highlights include: the display flight of a
      CALLIOPE HUMMINGBIRD at the junction of Maloy and Audubon Roads; GRAY
      FLYCATCHERS making their territorial calls at our camp off of Maloy
      Rd.; DUSKY FLYCATCHERS and PYGMY NUTHATCHES also responding
      territorially to Stan's bird jam at Audubon Camp; NASHVILLE AND
      TOWNSEND'S WARBLERS along Umtanum Creek; brilliant LEWIS'S
      WOODPECKERS in display flight above Umtanum Falls at the ridgetop;
      CASSIN'S VIREO near Umtanum Falls; and our first BLACK-HEADED
      GROSBEAK of the season at the Hardy Canyon Gate. Species list
      below. It was a great weekend. Cheers.
