The Trip:    Gorgeous spring day ... went to Woodland Bottoms to look for the Prairie Falcon which Russ K. has been reporting there ... ran into Jeff J. at the end of Guild Road who was also looking for the bird ... no luck when we arrived ... Jeff however gave us directions to the Great Horned Owl nest ... SUCCESS !!! ... saw at least one owlet ... returned to the end of Guild Road where we found the Falcon - halfway across the field towards Dike Road ... scope views, with the best being from Dike Road (sun angle) ... YEA !!! ... new Washington State bird !!!
