I saw the grouse again on Tuesday, she was standing in the middle of the  
road when I got there and came running to my car as usual. However, I saw no  
sign of her today. Overall the area seemed quiet compared to yesterday, and 
I  didn't see a single Hermit Thrush today. Yesterday I heard two singing! 
Earliest  I have ever heard them. I had only 1 La Waterthrush today after 5 
yesterday, and  one half-hearted Winter Wren after two yesterday. I did see 
three Palm Warblers  today, probably 2 the same as yesterday. 
After posting Monday that I had seen no sign of the Ravens, I heard one on  
Tuesday, and saw and heard one today. Still there but being very quiet. 
Eggs in  the nest maybe?
The Yellowbellied Sapsuckers were extremely active today, and I stood in  
one spot and could hear at least 5 of them drumming. I think I'm hearing more 
 now than I ever have before. Actually, I think I have been hearing them 
more  often than usual in many different parts of the state. 
Below is a link to pics of Ruffy. It's hard to take pictures with a long  
lens when you have to keep backing up to keep the bird in focus.
