First Stop: Mason County - Mary Theler Wetlands
Northern Pintails and American Wigeons were huddled together in the little sloughs, and the scope didn't show me much more.Heading back to the Union River Estuary Trail, I found my first "lifer" of the year, a Sora! I had been looking pretty hard for these little guys last year, although I had probably waited a bit too long, as most of them are hard to find when they are nesting, then head out to warmer places in the summer. I was not looking for one today - it's still winter, Mason County is not an easy place to find them, and I didn't have an IPod to pull them out.
