Reports of Rough-legs routinely spike in western Oregon around Oct.20, often
the only time they are reported at the coast all year. The prairie natural
area at Finley tends to have them all winter in years they are abundant.
Also in various pastures extending north to the Corvallis Airport. For some
reason there seems to be a concentration of the species between Suver and
Airlie on the Benton/Polk county line.
This is a much more cultivated landscape than south of Corvallis.
