Subject: [obol] Re: Breeding Green-winged Teal in Lincoln County
Hi Chris,

From your description of the habitat ("a pond in succession, soon to be
a meadow, stuffed with logs, grassy mounds, and rotted stumps ...
isolated by miles of forest"), that sounds very much like the location
in the industrial timberlands of the western Cascades where I reported a
Green-winged Teal hen with a brood last summer.

That location was in Linn County, not Lincoln. But I continue to be
convinced that birds don't pay nearly as much attention to county lines
as birders do. It's the habitat that counts.

Good birding,

Joel Geier
Camp Adair area north of Corvallis
