Kittitas County offers some spectacular birding where the ponderosa pine forest meets the subalpine fir zone on the drier eastern slope of the Cascade Range, creating a habitat for birds not seen west of the mountains. We’ll hit the Railroad Ponds in Cle Elum, the Swauk Prairie, the Teanaway area, the Ellensburg area, lower Robinson Canyon, and some other spots as time allows. We hope to find Pygmy Nuthatch, Mountain Chickadee, Vesper Sparrow, Mountain and Western Bluebirds, American Kestrel, Swainson’s Hawk, Bullock’s Oriole, Lazuli Bunting, various woodpeckers, and some warblers. Meet before 6:00 a.m. at the Tibbetts Park & Ride in Issaquah. Return by late afternoon. A Discover Pass is needed in a couple of stops. Bring lunch, snacks, and liquids. Carpool cost per passenger is $12.50 in addition to the donation. No registration required. Leader: Andy McCormick, 425-518-0892.
