Pullman, WA Bewick's Wrens/Spotted Towhee - Lawson Gardens/Kruegal Park , 3/6/11


I had a few hours to kill in Pullman this afternoon and stumbled upon Lawson Gardens in the southeast part of Pullman. It was quite full of birds including a pair of Bewick's Wrens (male singing) and a female Spotted Towhee. The towhee may be an arrival but it also seems a reasonable place for an over-wintering bird. This seems like a good urban park for wintering birds and perhaps could be in migration as well. The eBird list below includes some birds from the surrounding neighborhood.

thanks, Charles.

Hi Charles, We are finding your blog very interesting and appreciate your bird reports. We went to Cougar Bay Lake Coeur d'alene yesterday and believe we saw Trumpeter Swans and various duck species. We are interested in your Palouse River trip from Altergott Road to Elberton and are hoping to do this someday this spring. We live in Garfield. We have an aluminum boat.
