- Comments: "It was by itself in the sandy section of the resevoir near the
base of the embankment wall. We observed the bird for about 30 - 45 minutes
as it walked along the sandy bank of the resevoir probably about 100+ yards
from the water. It was stationary for long periods of time and tolerant of
our presence on the retainment wall. The bird was first spotted by one of
our local expert birders and noted on our COBOL listserv within the East
Cascades Audobon Society birding community. There were two other local
birders with us at the time of the observation making it 4 observers at the
time that these photos were taken."

- Comments: "Along trail 6 in the chaperel. Small gray bird with darker
tail with white outer feathers. Silent but flicked tail as it flitted
about the scrub. Pictures to follow. After reviewing the pics, we
determine there are 2 birds: and adult male and an immature bird. The
adult has a full eye ring, and is more well kempt, the imm has an
incomplete eye ring and a disheveled appearance. Apparently breeds here
per former reports"
