Day 4, though birding was of course present, produced more scenery then it did birds. Amazingly, I didn’t see any life birds. The highlights were- White-crowned Sparrow, Common Nighthawk, Black-headed Grosbeak, and American Kestrel.
But what St. Helens lacked in avian life in made up for in scenery. The volcano still showed obvious signs of the 1980 eruption, and it was an incredible example of how fast an area could change. I don’t have much time , so I’ll put all my words into pictures.
The only things missing were the dragons and orcs- We were in middle-earth, right?
