Trip summary by Janet Naylor

High points: Two Wood ducks in a tree,
Bald eagle in new nest; grass growing in old nest.
Bald eagle sitting in tall fir tree not too far South of the new nest, (after the walk, at 11:50am).
Two Cooper’s hawks, flying very high.
Four red-breasted nuthatches
Two or three Townsend’s warblers at top of tall fir,
Migratory warblers: Orange-crowned arrive late March; we saw one! Other migratory warblers will arrive mid-April, so we didn’t see any today.

Oso bushes in flower, a few trilliums, and one shooting star in flower.
