Subject: [obol] Feeder visits around Sisters
Thanks to 8 birders who allowed us to bird their yards, we had a fun day
despite the overcast sky and cold (high of 32 degrees) all day. Jake
Schaas, Gerkes, Carolyn Rochelle, Danny Swarts, Clay Crofton, AnnNora
Kruger, Kristen and John Tackmier and Jim and Sue Anderson all had their
feeders ready for the birds and birders. Although some recent celebrity
birds didn't show up today, we really enjoyed the big flock of Pinyon
Jays and 3 Varied Thrush with Clay and Marilyn, The mini Cal Quail and
multitude of Siskins at Anderson's, etc. See notes beside species if it
was only seen 1 or 2 locations. I believe Don Sutherland ebirded our
birds today.
