"Bonneville Dam and Franz Lake, Skamania County, Washington ... October 27, 2014"
The Trip:    Nice fall day after a weekend of storm ... went to see if we could re-locate the Heerman's Gulls which had been spotted at Bonneville Dam ... no luck ... also looked for the Redhead and the Dunlin seen at Franz Lake ... no luck there either ... but enjoyed a flock of over 60 Bonaparte's Gulls at the Dam, nice views of "tweety-types" on Hamilton Island, and eight Swans were back at Franz Lake.
