Subject: [COBOL] arrivals and spring behavior
Greetings COBOLers,

As Chuck forecasted, birds are on the move. Some recent observations:

- Swainson's Hawk 1 -- 4/04, Crooked River Wetland and then drifting WNW
down Oneil Valley
- Virginia Rail 4+ -- 4/04 and 4/06 Crooked River Wetland Complex,
multiple couples singing/vocalizing
- Eared Grebe 5 -- 4/05 Hatfield
- Greater Yellowleg 1 -- 4/06 Crooked River Wetland Complex
- Yellow-rumped Warblers 10+ -- on Wednesday 3, and Friday more than 10
at Crooked River Wetland Complex
- Ring-necked Pheasant -- 4/06 male crowing at Crooked River Wetland
- Sagebrush Sparrow 1 -- 4/06 FOY at Crooked River Wetland Complex (also
the first I've ever observed at this unlikely location)

Good birding,
