Somewhat buried in my usual long post about birding were 2 messages to note:
Carpooling times for Wednesdays will be an hour later now that daylight hours are shortened.
POSSIBLE Great-tailed Grackle at first pond on the left as entering the Crooked River Wetlands complex. It was walking along the edge of vegetation and disappeared after 2 of us watched it briefly. It was a female bird, no streaks on front of warm buffy/brown chest/breast. I am aware that male Great-tailed Grackle was seen earlier in the year there. Briefly considered female Rusty BB for ID but Sherrie and I both thought it was too large. Strong light supercillium was noted by us. It may have had a large bill, gone too fast to get all the details.
