We took a drive to Harrison Hot Springs where we took a walk around the lagoon.
A wet Common Raven was perched near the entrance to the pathway.
We watched two American Dippers spending most of their time in the water diving for fish eggs and insects

A Red-necked Grebe floated past the moored boats in the distance.
A nice flock of Greater Scaup was paddling nearby.
A surprise for us was finding a River Otter swimming in the lagoon. It was just as surprised someone had noticed it.
Just as we were leaving, a Gray-crowned Rosy-Finch hopped onto the sidewalk near our car. It flew away, so we drove around the block to see if we could find it. We didn’t find it on the next street, so we drove back to the parking area where the Gray-crowned Rosy-Finch landed right in front of the car. We enjoyed taking a lot of photos while people approached asking us what we were photographing. The little bird ignored all of the attention, continuing to enjoy its meal of seeds from a plant that it found. We dedicated a journal of its own to this lovely little bird.
