"Columbia River at Hayden Island, Oregon ... November 20, 2010"
The Trip:    COLD !!! ... but dry with sun breaks ... wanted to check out the White-winged Scoters again, and perhaps see if the Red-necked Grebes were there ... success on the Scoters but not on the Grebes ... there were lots of Lesser Scaups and Western Grebes but no Hooded Grebes like 2 days ago ... plus quite a few Buffleheads and a couple of Greater Scaups, and 4 Surf Scoters towards the middle of the Columbia ... and to top the day off, a BEAUTIFUL Bald Eagle sent the whole flock scattering !!!!!!!!!! ... near the boat basin was a Common Loon and a Double-crested Cormorant and LOTS of House Sparrows in the vines !!!
