Over the weekend I did short walks or point counts, and eBirded everything I found, from 18 locations that hadn't been birded in any previous Novembers in Benton and Polk Counties according to the maps I linked to from here recently. All spots were in my CBC circle so this served the extra purpose of scouting part of that. Near Airlie I stumbled upon a Northern Mockingbird in a small patch of brush surrounded by hundreds of acres of ag fields. It was 0.5 mile north of Airlie Road on Saurkraut Road (gotta love that name!). Also tried to view the gulls at the Coffin Butte landfill north of Corvallis but couldn't detect anything unusual, though too far away this time to confidently ID most birds even with a scope. A few Tundra Swans and a variety of ducks were at the pond on De Armond Road.
