On the way back from the WBCI meeting, I stopped by the Rainbow Flowage -- the 
drawdown has created some nice habitat.
The highlight was a WESTERN GREBE which I first spotted as a near-silhouette to 
the west of the point with the shorebirds accessed from Oxbow Rd, but I later 
was able to spot the grebe in better light scoping from the erosion overlook on 
Rainbow Drive.

Other birds of interest:

40 American Golden-Plover
35 Black-bellied Plover
8 Pectoral Sandpiper
10 Wilson's Snipe
1 Greater Yellowlegs
1 Peregrine Falcon
4 Lapland Longspur
20 American Pipit
9 Rusty Blackbird
