Snow Buntings

On the first day of Spring we birded the lower part of Okanogan County, including Cameron Lake Road, and saw many hundreds of Snow Buntings, a winter migrant to northern Washington, also Sandhill Cranes, Rough-legged Hawks and Mountain Bluebirds, a nice mix of winter and spring birds to go with my life bird, a Yellow-billed Loon on the Columbia River in Douglas County, a nice birthday present.

who walked here?

Ken found these tracks crossing the ski trail near Early Winters. What animal made them?
