Subject: [obol] Re: Least Flycatcher Deschutes County -
My  suggestion , if you want to generate useful data for science, is put in " new personal location" And never use a hot spot again. There is an opportunity to insert a name after the gps coordinates of this new personal location, so it need not be anonymous, generic, what have you. GPS coordinates inserted into the comment section at the end of the list are a nightmare to convert to a pin drop. Researchers rarely refer to those notes. Paul Adamus recently mentioned the standard codes offered---"flyover""nesting" what have you . Using these standard codes in the same line as the species they reference is quite useful to a researcher. Putting them in the comments section means they will probably never be read.       Sent from my Verizon, Samsung Galaxy smartphone

Stay on the main road, park at the gate and walk downstream from there a couple hundred yards. If you do start at the end of the 305/306 access you’ll be rewarded with plenty of other good birds, though.   This area is still Upper Indian Ford Creek. Tom Crabtree, Bend
