Phillips Landing/Nanticoke WA Trip Report Oct. 24, 2019


10 birders gathered in the parking lot at Phillips Landing. The temperature was 40F with fog on the water. Parking lot action included 4 bluebirds, pine and yellow-rump warblers. Saw a beaver in the river. Walked the woodland trail and had several hermit thrush. We then went to the Nanticoke WA fields and saw some hawks and sparrows. Best moment of the day was a low flyover of a red-tailed hawk who screamed at a pair of coopers hawks flying high above him. We had a total 36 species in 2 eBird checklists:
