Subject: [obol] Negative bird data
Some of us are trained in the science way of doing things, a special and
unique way of thinking..some say on obol that negative data is just as good
as positive data and I understand that view.

But today I drove 180 miles for as close as you can come to seeing no birds
at all, and I don't agree.

I went to the Olallie Butte area at the most east edge of Marion County, at
the crest such as it is there, of the Cascades. I birded from the Olallie
Meadows CG a couple miles each way north and south. My species list was
about 6: 1 or 2 Crowned Sparrows, YR Warbler, Gray Jay, Steller's Jay,
Flicka and Junco, 1, maybe 2, of each. Beautiful sunshiny fall day, not
cold, no birds.
