> The geese moved a field to the East sometime before noon. They were in the field with the big power lines running through it, in front of the blue barn with a red door. Butler Market is very narrow at that point, so it is best to park down a ways and walk back. The Emperor was hanging out with 11 Pacific White-fronted Geese, 1 "Tule" Goose, 32 Canadas and the weird hybrid goose that Mike Ogle found at Hatfield yesterday. I spoke with one of the owners of the property and she said she had seen the Emperor "a few times" over the past month, so this could be where it has been hanging out.

Coming from the Bend Airport, travel west for 2.0 miles to a stop sign. Hamehook is on your right and the goose is with its White-fronted friends in the field next to this intersection.

> Hi,
> After seeing the Emperor Goose this morning, I walked through Pine Nursery Park and along the Canal West of Purcell Rd hoping to find the Harris's Sparrows. No luck there. I did hear a strange short burst of song. It consisted of Three different notes repeated Three times each, Northern Mockingbird came instantly to mind. An hour passed with no sight nor sound of the bird. So, if your in the area keep an eye out. It was along Canal west of Purcell in a yard with feeders just west of large Blackberry patch.

> Fox Sparrow 1 sooty
> White-crowned Sparrow c10
> Golden-crowned Sparrow 2
> California Scrub Jays 4
> Sharp-shinned Hawk 1

> Pine Nursery Park

> In Pond was 8 Hooded Merganser plus 2 Ring-neck Duck.
> Along Canal by Frisby course was 15 Golden-crowned Sparrow, 10 White-crowned Sparrow, and 2 Spotted Towhee.
