Interesting about the Green Heron. According to Cornell, all of Oregon is
a non-year-round range for them.
https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Green_Heron/maps-range.
A pair of Green Herons for the last few years has been famously nesting in
(almost) plain sight near the large conference building across the south
bridge at Crystal Springs. Seems likely this would be one of them?
In contrast to the above map, There are 20-40 Oregon eBird records over
time from Oct-November including 5-10 from Crystal Springs.
Time to revise the map?
