I didn’t look to see who the compilers were. I think you are right about Tom McCamant.

Lower Owyhee was essentially a cooperative venture of Vale BLM and ODFW.

Ruggs-Hardman was run for decades by Steve Brownfield as a high school project at Heppner HS. That’s why it shows 35 observers. As I recall a couple of those students became professionals - Kirk or Kermit Horn? And another I am forgetting. I attended once, on a day with freezing fog. I recall walking down a scrubby draw for half a mile while I became coated in ice. My mustache had icicles. How many birds on that walk? ONE Bohemian Waxwing.

Nestucca Bay was also run by a high school teacher as a sort of class project. I attended once.

Gold Beach was run by Fred Bowen, a high school teacher. It was mostly adults. I went down once in the early 1970s with Chip Jobanek to participate. Lovely area. We saw a Burrowing Owl and a group of five Oldsquaw (Long-tailed Dux).
