Subject: [obol] Barn Swallow fly-out from Grand Island
The fly-out of BARN SWALLOWS from their Grand Island roost can be seen on
radar this morning!



Call up the Portland weather radar and look in the southeast corner of
Yamhill County.

The first burst of bright green appears at 6:30 AM, then grows to a small
donut at 6:40 (now). It will continue to grow and disperse until it
dissolves.



I plan to head out there before sunset, 7:30 PM, and try to find which
cornfield they are using.
