Subject: [obol] Snow swallows at Henry Hagg Lake
Hi all,

After dropping off some Willamette Valley Birding Trail brochures in
McMinnville on my way up to Portland this afternoon, I detoured up the
Scoggins Valley to check out Henry Hagg Lake (Site T5 on the Tualatin
Loop of the trail, just west of Gaston which might be my favorite town
in Washington County).

A hundred or so TREE SWALLOWS were foraging low over the reservoir as
light snow was falling. I wondered how they could pick out the insects
amid the snowflakes.

A WESTERN GREBE was on a small pond just below the sawmill.

Happy birding,

Joel Geier
Camp Adair area north of Corvallis
