Subject: [COBOL] Wednesday around Sisters in Milli wildfire area
Birders stayed after I left and species count will be higher. Light rain
or colder weather or what ever, kept bird activity pretty quiet in the
morning. We tried the areas expected to be good spots for woodpeckers.
We checked a lot of the burned area, but still missed birds heard and
seen in areas in past 1 or 2 days. We saw no woodpeckers going to
cavities or excavating cavities. I think Tom Lawler and perhaps others
ebirded as we went along so thanks.

Birded areas in the 2017 Milli burn, w along 242, Millican Crater rd,
Trout Creek swamp WP spot, Scott Pass/1026, and Whispering Pine HC.
This report was mailed for Judy Meredith by

Sooty Grouse - repeatedly booming around 1018/1026 intersection. No one
saw it.
