Subject: [obol] ECAS Wednesday mostly Jefferson County, Grasslands, Gray Butte etc
Big thanks to Chuck Gates who led us around to great spots. And a big
thanks to the great "pit team" who changed a tire. Maybe not in record
time but what a display of teamwork!

We birded eastern Jefferson county today, Osborne Springs, brushy areas
to the south of Haystack and on around toward Gray Butte, then across
grasslands to Ramms Rd an toward Grizzly. We dipped into Crook county to
check on breeding Tri-colored as we finished the day returning to
Terrebonne. Thanks to Milt and Sally for ebirding. Thanks to Chuck for
taking us to a real, bonafide Red-naped Sapsucker! Great morning
studying birds of the juniper/sage and several of the group got good
photos of the birds. If I missed some on the list, ebirders will send
me corrections I hope. Next week, Riley Ranch trail.
