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.
