Today I joined Ken, Heather, Richard and Mary for the Kitsap area of the Vashon CBC. I skipped owling, and met the group at 8:00 AM at the Burley church. Overall a sunny, at times breezy day without unexpected birds, but a pretty good variety of the expected species and numbers. Waterfowl disappointed with no NOSH, CANV or REDH. The earlybirds did well with 4 species of owl including good looks at a Barn owl at dawn. Always nice to get out with Ken, and too bad it had to be on NY Eve.
