> *SUMMARY AND HIGHLIGHTS;*
>
> Cold bright Sunday morning with 14 birders with 3.4 miles of birding
> footwork. Thanks to Paul Evans and Kay Fagan for lead on this busy
> multi-use trail. We headed through the field near the 3rd parking to the
> brightness of the north-easterly Natural Area. We joined high person trail
> activity the entire way. We had low bird yield number sighting, probably
> connected with the temperature and much of the berry-raisin food is done,
> with few bugs in the air. But we can say with confidence the members had
> good looks at the species and enjoyed themselves immensely.
>
>
> Thanks to eagle eyes we picked up looks of *AMERICAN KESTREL,* through
> branches and shrubbery thanks also to leaves-be-gone on distant perches.
>
>
> The Bald Eagle pair nor the sub adult showed, but we will continue looking
> through the winter and the upcoming Salem Aububon CBC in this Sector #4.
>
>
> The "1" of any census on birding is always intriguing and we had a single
> * MERLIN, *chased by a *MEW GULL* over the water and down the river seen
> from the river trail. It was truly remarkable connection of the most
> unlikely birds to have confrontation.
>
>
>
> We had a single *SPOTTED SANDPIPER* on the river edge across.
>
>
> We had a single *CHESTNUT-BACKED CHICKADEE*, in the woodland stand and the
> natural area where last year a Mountain Chickadee was found by Fred and
> Kay.
>
>
> We had a single *TOWNSEND WARBLER* found with 2* RUBY-CROWNED KINGLET* in
> an ash tree and in shade, across from the evergreen woodland in the Natural
> Area
>
>
> Our last bird of the walk was a *RED-BREASTED SAPSUCKER*. The tree where
> seen today is notable with prior attraction- juvenile being seen
> accompanied by an adult in the past. Today in concert with the sapsucker,
> an *ANNA'S HUMMINGBIRD* followed sipping the created sap wells.

>
> KTZV.com reported on 24 January 2017 that the Bureau of Land Management
> Prineville District started implementing a series of annual wildlife
> closures to protect several species of birds of prey during sensitive
> nesting periods. Included among the closures is Fryrear Canyon located 6
> miles southeast of Sisters Oregon which we first visited on new years' day
> 2012. Fryrear Canyon is now regularly closed to all users from February 1
> to August 31.
> Below are a few landscape images from our recent search for evidence of
> raptor nests amidst the canyon walls. While our search yielded only one
> nest we were able to enjoy but not photograph several bird species
> including, CLARK'S NUTCRACKER, CANYON WREN, COMMON RAVEN, SONG SPARROW,
> MOUNTAIN CHICKADEE, OREGON JUNCO, TOWNSEND'S SOLITAIRE, and PYGMY NUTHATCH.

> We like this 5-mile round-trip bird walk, it's easy in and out over flat
> terrain and once you reach the entrance to canyon you are soon consumed by
> the narrow width and low height of the canyon walls that make it obvious
> why birds choosing to nest in this habitat would be vulnerable to human
