Pacific Loon

Revisited on March 28, 2017 about description and species identification. Criteria used to separate this loon from others sharply defined border from darker neck and white throat with a chin strap present. Other loons have different field marks that distinguish them. No means of photographing them at time as most were observed by scope; digiscoping a big time consuming process with poor results for effort put forth. Original field notebook not consulted as it would require more time I do not want to expend at this time.

Harris's Sparrow

Good numbers of Harris's sparrows were found in some good habitat areas below the dam. I am sure more of these sparrows and others could be found if I had put more effort into looking for them.

White-throated Sparrow

Still good numbers of these sparrow lurking in brush piles and weedy patches.
