Subject: [obol] ECAS Wednesday, WF Ibis and shorebirds
We birded at Crooked River Wetlands Complex (CRWC), a brief stop at
Houston, at Cindy Z home, and last at Redmond pond.Thanks to Chuck for
ferrying us around at CRWC.The Tri-colored Blackbirds were a treat,
being able to watch them copulating and carrying food, and not while
along a busy road. Wilson's Phalaropes at CRWC and the FOUR RED-NECKED
PHALAROPES ( early?) at Redmond were good, as was the single Lesser
Yellowlegs at CRWC. Scope views of the Red-necked P showed the shorter
bills, dark black mark on the face, and the diagonal feathering on the
flanks that are found on Red-necked. The single Bonaparte's at CRWC and
a Caspian Tern at Houston were a nice surprise. We failed to find a
Red-shouldered Hawk that Cindy Z had recently at her place. Lastly, to
the south of Redmond pond, we heard and saw a few Pinyon Jays and
Black-billed Magpies. No sign of Swainson's Hawks there but some saw
them at CRWC. Thanks to Evan for ebirding today.
