Cleaning Up 2017 Leftovers

Today I made time before and after Rotary to try for some uncommon Pierce birds left over from 2017. No luck at the 11th St Bridge area for Harris’s sparrow where Marv Breese and I looked without success in the morning. Then on the way to Puyallup I did manage a distant look at the Gyrfalcon at Steele St. where I was able to get Katherine Cooper onto the bird in the tall cottonwood tree.
After Rotary and grocery shopping I first tried for the Black phoebe at the Oxbow Remnant area, without success but at Radience Blvd. I did flush the American bittern just as I stepped onto the berm.
Getting two nice Pierce County FOY birds for the day was sweet.
