Observation details

At 1723, when I was still ca 40 m distant, a small passerine flushed up (from grasses, I thought) and perched briefly in the open <1 m high on a horizontal branch of a large Salix (eriocephala?) clump about 80 m E of the red culverts. Noted a bit of yellow on the tail or rump; distinctive tail-wagging. From 1729 to ca 1732, I relocated the PAWA <.5 m high on the S side of the same Salix clump, bobbing its tail. It moved slowly along an area where the willow branches overhang bare ground down to the creek, then flew to an Alnus incana that was partly in the creek, then a Clematis ligusticifolia tangle on the bank. I worked my way a bit farther downstream after losing sight of it, but first saw it flick open tail feathers in a short flight and saw white "windows" on the outer rectrices. Relocated it briefly again, now perched ca 4 m from me and ca 2/3 m high in a senescing Ribes aureum. It then flew downstream a bit more and I lost sight of it near vertical dirt banks. Heard no calls. Apparently foraging.
