Trip Description: We will be visiting Washtucna, Palouse Falls SP, and Lyons Ferry SP. Depending on time, and how the birding is we may go down to Windust and the Lower Monumental Dam area. We aim to be back in Washtucna before 5pm or if we do not car pool you can leave on your own terms. Pack a lunch. We will walking on mostly flat areas in parks, tennis/hiking shoes will be fine. Rain and especially wind is a possibility so bring clothes with that in mind. These areas are very well known migrant traps so the hope here is to find some rarities, whether it be rare sparrows, a vagrant warbler or even a lost pelagic species. This is the later end for a lot things, but there is still a strong potential for something unusual to show up. We will be in Franklin and Adams, with migration going on this would be a great time to pick up a few new ones for these counties
