Summer Trip to Washington Part 3 - East Side Again

Had just a little business to clean up back on the east side when we got back, which we took care of in one trip up to Pend Oreille County, adding three birds. A Ruffed Grouse flew across the road on the way up, which I thought was going to be the only one I'd see all year, but I wound up flushing a group of them on a hike up in the north woods of Wisconsin with my staff in August. Lewis's and Three-toed made my 18 woodpecker year possible.
