This afternoon I decided to drop by the Little Big Econ State Park for a few minutes. I’ve driven by this place many times on my way to Geneva WA and other places. I don’t know why I’ve never come here before. Maybe it’s because they couldn’t decide if it was little or big. But it was hard to believe how pretty this area is, and I’m kicking myself for not visiting this place sooner. As pretty as it was today, I suspect it will be even prettier when the water level is higher on the Econ River.
There were plenty of birds to be seen here as well. I found White-eyed Vireos, Blue-headed Vireos, Yellow-rumped Warblers, Palm Warblers (including one “yellow”), a Pine Warlber and a Yellow-throated Warbler. The biggest treat, though, was a Hermit Thrush–this is my first Hermit Thrush of the year.
