Yesterday morning Dennis and I birded the Fort Rock/Cabin Lake area. We, too, did not find Sage Grouse, though we watched the lek site from 6:35-7:20. As Judy mentioned raptors in the area were plentiful with Rough-legged & Ferruginous Hawks, Bald and Golden Eagles and Prairie Falcons. We found good numbers of SAGEBRUSH SPARROWS on the road to Cabin Lake along with a singing SAGE THRASHER. There were good numbers of birds at Cabin Lake in spite of the nasty weather including a CLARK'S NUTCRACKER and a noisy flock of 60 PINYON JAYS. Other birds at Fort Rock included a BARN OWL and Dennis spotted An early WHITE-THROATED SWIFT.
