After seeing the American Pipits on the Confluence Road at RMBS, we birded Columbia Bottom this afternoon for the Confluence CBC.  Had 5 Trumpeter swans, 2 mature and 3 immature, in the pool before the split to the confluence.  Also had about 50 Lapland Longspurs in the same area.  Had a nice group of sparrows in the sparrow field before the boat ramp including Lincoln's, Swamp, Fox, W-Crowned, & Am. Tree.  Had hundreds of Red-winged Blackbirds with many Brown-headed Cowbirds mixed in.
