Subject: [obol] McGilchrist Pond (SE Salem) Red-necked Grebe 11/12/17
This time of year, for two reasons, I check Staats Lake in Keizer and the
gravel pit ponds in SE Salem on Sunday mornings. (almost) Rarely seen in
Marion Co, there was a RED-NECKED GREBE on McGilchrist Pond (aka Stone
Quarry pond) associating with a WESTERN GREBE. A pair of CANVASBACKS were
on Staats Lake, Canvasback are scarce in Marion Co, harder to find than in
Linn/Benton Counties, and equally as hard to find as in Polk/Yamhill

I looked again for the probable Ferruginous Hawk at Ankeny NWR and could
not find it or the 3-4 Red-tails it was rather unhappily associating with 2
days ago. I am afraid it got away...
