Subject: [obol] Eugene Wednesday morning

Dennis Arendt reports:
A portion of the Eugene Wednesday birders went into the eastern section
of Alton Baker Park. Another group went after the Gyrfalcon which was
relocated recently near Halsey. The Alton Baker Park group walked
through the sprinkling rain and had very good sightings of Hairy and
Pileated Woodpeckers, along with Red-breasted Sapsuckers and Flickers.
We looked carefully through a group of Golden-crowned Sparrows for a
Harris's Sparrow (reported earlier in this area), but did not see it.
The Yellow-rumped Warblers were in large groups high in the cottonwood
trees. Swallows were overhead most of the morning; they were mostly
Tree Swallows with a few Violet-greens. The entire list follows.

Wood Duck – several in the channel
