Dash Around S. Pierce in the Rain Today

Today I managed to get out of the condo by about 2:30 in what looked like a break in the weather, but the rain picked up almost before I left. Target birds in general were obliging:

Saw-whet Owl (Thurston) remained behind the taped off area at the Nisqually NWR parking lot.

Crowned sparrows were present in numbers at the Easterday Road feeder, including a tan-stripped morph of White-throated sparrow. CBCH and VATH there were also FOY birds for me.

A Northern harrier harassed a RTHA at Mount’s Road pullout, though the rain kept most birds lying low.

A nice break from being holed up at home and getting some fresh air as well as FOY species.
