"Marine Park, Columbia River, Vancouver, Washington ... December 23 and 30, 2015"
The Trips: 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 !!!    December 30:   COLD and WINDY, but went to scout out Marine Park for the Portland CBC "count week". Had nice views of both Goldeneyes through the Columbia waves.
