Grant County Late Fall Migrant Trip
Leader: Gary Blevins
This is a beginning, intermediate and advanced birder-oriented trip to look for specialty birds, such as Arctic Gulls, Lapland Longspurs, and other hard to find and see northern visitors. There may be some down time with little action in between bird sightings but potential for rarities is high. It is a full-day trip from sunrise to sunset. The trip takes a Loop drive from Spokane to Soap Lake and back to Spokane usually after dark. Contact Gary Blevins (863-2659 or firstname.lastname@example.org) by October 16 if you plan to attend.
Target Birds: Loons and grebes; scoters and rare wintering waterfowl; wintering raptors; Glaucous, Thayers, and Glaucous-winged Gulls; Northern Shrike; Snow Bunting; Lapland Longspur; Gray-crowned Rosy Finch
