There was a flock of 20+ Meadowlarks in the dry grassy-looking parts of
pool 11. Some, if not all, were Western Meadowlarks.

 

One female Common Goldeneye, Greater Scaup and Lesser Scaup, were in the
distribution channel. Most common waterfowl were Canada Geese, Mallard,
Northern Shoveler and Gadwall. Also saw three Northern Pintail and two
American Wigeon.

 

One gray phase Eastern Screech-Owl peering out of one of the Wood Duck
nest boxes. Perhaps the south facing hole was allowing her/him to soak
up the winter sun's warmth.

 

The Red-breasted Nuthatch was still coming to the headquarter building's
feeders. There were also Purple and House Finches present. They, along
with the American Goldfinches, made for interesting study. There were
also Yellow-rumped Warblers appearing in the trees near these feeders.

 

I observed at least five Turkey Vultures flying over the eastern side of
Columbia during the early afternoon hours.
