WHAS - Bird Lists and Wildlife Sightings

Cowlitz County Bird List (May update)

Whimbrel - Image: USFWSThe big excitement in May was the first ever record of Whimbrel in Cowlitz County. A small flock was found in the Woodland Bottoms on the 25th and grew to 33 birds a couple days later. There were still 9 present on the 31st.

We are now at 187 species which ties our second best year ever and we still have 7 months left, but besting last year's record may prove formidable as we have already found nearly all the annual species.

For more information contact Russ Koppendrayer through our Wildlife Sightings area.
