Subject: [obol] No Ruff but Bittern seen on Dotterel Trail
Thanks to Alan Contreras and others for helping us find the trail.
I was having trouble navigating the ECAS page on my iPhone
( but had I been able to I
would have learned that good directions are here

I made a detailed map here if anyone is interested:,-124.13662&z=15&t=H&marker0=43.97481%2C-124.13632%2CDotterel%20Trail&marker1=43.98061%2C-124.13241%2CDeflation%20Area%20(Ruff%202017)

B = the Dotterel Trail and D = the Deflation area where the Ruff had been seen.

We didn't see the Ruff yesterday afternoon but we did get decent looks
at an American Bittern, a couple photos are on the eBird list here:

We are new to the state (moved here in June), and are thankful for all
the help we got on OBOL. We had a great weekend at the shorebird
festival in the Coos Bay/Bandon area and enjoyed meeting
some Oregon birders.
