Subject: [obol] Lost Lagoon Farm Bird List for April 1-15, 2017
Below is my bird list for the first half of April, 2017, for birds seen or heard on or from our property on Gillihan Road, Sauvie Island. I identified 58 species - one fewer than for the last two weeks in March. We got several first of year birds (noted below). Some ducks and gulls have left the area, and I am not seeing bald eagles on the south end of the island. The swallow nest boxes are becoming occupied.
