COBOL considers Summer Lake and Malheur to be “Central Oregon.” You might have noticed that the Dean Hale Woodpecker Festival announcement mentions a trip to Summer Lake as one of the highlights of the Festival. You didn’t commit a faux pas.
People might like reading about trips to other parts of the state as Kathleen Martin mentioned, but that is what OBOL (Oregon Birders Online) is for. If you like the broader spectrum, sign up for OBOL at http://www.orbirds.org/obolguidelines.html.

I agree. I like all posts, primarily Central Oregon, but after I posted yesterday about my trip to Summer Lake and Burns (after seeing the one on Fields to Burns), and then saw Tom Crabtree’s post about exclusivity, I felt I had committed a great faux pas.

All in all due respect, the report Elise Wolf gave about her trip to the Oregon Coast was just as welcome as when COBOL reports on their trips to the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge or the Steen’s Mountain area, which, last time I checked, were not in “Central Oregon” either. And, there are a lot of folks that read the COBOL from all over Oregon. I personally find reports about other parts of Oregon very interesting as I will then know what to look for if/when I am fortunate enough to visit those other areas of our great state. Let’s not be so snobbish in requiring that only “Central Oregon” birds be talked about/reported on. That would be very dull.
