Subject: [COBOL] Prineville Wetlands
Spent about three hours at Prineville Wetlands and ran into Chuck Gates who pointed us to the bird of the day for us, a red-necked phalarope on the old sewer ponds mixed in with several dozen Wilson’s phalaropes. Thanks to Chuck for helping get the Prineville wetland project off the ground. We ran into a couple from Tucson who had come there having heard what a great facility it is. They said they were meeting Howard Horvath later on since they had met him while he was birding in Tucson. A bit cool but loads of activity. Here is what we saw:
