Subject: [obol] More Yamhill county birds
Yesterday I went back to the Willamina fishing pond to see if that
Red-breasted Merganser had reappeared. It hadn't.

I checked the nearby sewage ponds and didn't find it there either.

At the sewage ponds I found pair of very confiding HUTTON'S VIREOS that came
really close to check out my pygmy owl toots.

In the afternoon I drove up Bald Mountain Rd to McGuire reservoir. I found
another confiding pair of HUTTONS VIREOS there. What's with that? I also
found many Varied Thrushes along the way.

I found CANADA JAYS in three places up there. I think I missed them
entirely last year in Yamhill county.

And I saw:

Mount Rainier 139 mi

Mount St. Helens 89 mi

Mount Adams 116 mi

Mount Hood 89 mi

Mount Jefferson 92 mi

Three Fingered Jack 99 mi

Mount Washington 106 mi

and the Three Sisters 116 mi

all from the comfort of my home county.
