We walked the pathways around the north campus of U of O, basically along the mill race, then crossed the foot bridge to include the public garden of Alton Baker and river trail. Most of the ducks were in the mill race by the north campus. The cold temperatures made it a bit uncomfortable. A BLACK-HEADED GROSBEAK was not seen by the group. It is a feeder bird reported to me by a person in the neighborhood.
