"LaFrambois Road, Shillapoo Wildlife Area, Vancouver, Washington ... December 23 and 26, 2015"
The Trips: Wednesday, December 23:   Cold, windy, nasty morning ... went to Marine Park on the Columbia River however to see if we could find the Surf Scoters which have been seen there ... no luck, but gave up because of weather ... then headed to Wintler Park to look for gulls (two Black-legged Kittiwakes were seen in the area yesterday) but with the wind and rain we didn't bother to get out of the car ... we headed home, only to have the weather clear a bit, so we headed to LaFrambois Road to see if we could find the Chipping Sparrow seen there last week ... nope ... but did find a White-throated Sparrow, a new bird for LaFrambois Road !!!    Saturday, December 26:   Cold but no wind, overcast, dry ... went back to LaFrambois Road to see if we could find the Chipping Sparrow ... no such luck but did have a Lincoln's Sparrow !!! ... also, TWO White-throated Sparrows ... other neat birds were a mature Cooper's Hawk, and a locale first - a Pileated Woodpecker !!!
