Subject: [obol] Re: Snowy Egret Clackamas County
I did not see any egrets where I looked near the area indicated. I glassed the large pasture from Hwy 213, walked around the trail at Stone Creek Golf, and looked at the creek and bottom lands from Fern Bluff Dr. I looked from ~12:15-1300 then a half hour later. There was a GB Heron way out in the big pasture, some GC Kinglets at wetlands at Stone Creek GC, etc. Got to watch some golfers that were decent players too.
