Pritchard Area Birding June 9, 2019

Isaac and I headed out for some later afternoon and dusk birding.  Target species was Bobolink but the night got much better than that with the discovery of a Long-eared Owl nest.  New Kamloops area birds for me were Long-eared Owl, Bobolink, Long-billed Curlew, and a Ring-necked Pheasant.  Very birdy area!
