The Trip:    GORGEOUS summer day with temperatures in the high 70s and nice breeze if you were in the right spot ... went out to the Dike Road with the view of Burke Island to look for the Franklin's Gulls which Russ K. had spotted there in the morning ... took us two attempts but SUCCESS !!! ... a NEW STATE BIRD !!! ... Russ said these were only the 2nd sightings of Franklins in Cowlitz County. ... also added Willow Flycatcher and Red-breasted Merganser to the Woodland Bottoms list.
