"Steigerwald Lake NWR, Washington ... March 18, 19, 23, 25, and 31, 2016"
The Trips:    Went to see if we could find the Burrowing Owl which has been being seen there. FINALLY SUCCESS on the 4th trip !!! ... A LIFER !!! ... EXTREMELY windy on the 18th and 19th but only breezy and overcast on the 23rd, and the 25th started drizzly but ended up a beautiful spring day. The 31st was just a gorgeous spring day. Friday the 18th we hiked out to the dike via the Refuge but the rest of the trips we hiked out on the dike via Captain William Clark Park.

The birds we looked for and others were seeing:

  1. Burrowing Owl ... YES !!!
  2. Greater White-fronted Goose ... nope
  3. Loggerhead Shrike ... nope
  4. Ross's Goose ... nope
  5. Say's Phoebe ... YES, saw them on the first four trips


The Locale:    The Steigerwald Lake National Wildlife Refuge is located along the Columbia River east of Washougal, Washington.
