Subject: [obol] Deschutes county - Riley Ranch Nature Reserve, Tumalo Res, and Hatfield, ECAS Wednesday
We did some on foot birding today. First trip for Wednesdays to Riley
Ranch. Half of us went on to Tumalo Reservoir where we finished with
seeing Peter Low and hearing about 10 species of shorebirds he saw at
Hatfield so 3 of us went there next. List below will note location for a
"good" bird if it was only seen in one site. PS, for the list from last
week, we will remove Vesper Sparrow but add Wilson's Warbler.
