Subject: [obol] Pittock, NW Portland, week ending 5/15/2019
Here is the summary of my morning walks from NW Seblar Terrace
to the Pittock Mansion for the week 5/9/19 to 5/15/19. Species
neither seen nor heard in the previous week are in ALL CAPS.

Additional information about my walk may be found at

The sightings are also in eBird.

I did the walk only 3 days this week.

Tomorrow, May 16, I will be leading another of this season’s “Morning
Bird Song Walks” at the Pittock Mansion for Portland Audubon. For
