Birding South-Central Washington State
Later we made our way to the Mt. Adams area and explored some new spots and some old favorites.
One hightlight I have no photos of. But I do have a fun recording:
Later we made our way to Glenwood for the night. On the highway we saw two Common Nighthawks over a clearcut. It was only 6pm, but they were out already. We pulled off and watched and listened. It was just a taste of more to come.
Thick clouds were rolling in and in the middle of the night a fierce thunder and lightening storm developed right before dawn. Lots of rain fell and as the rain cleared we could hear nighthawks calling. Then the sky started to grow bright and pewees started to sing.
And that was just the first day!
