Too late, half of the OBOL subscribership already crossed the Idaho state line on I-84, on their way to chase that Hudsonian Godwit near Ogden! :-)

But it was interesting to see the report of a Green Heron just off I-80 a little east of Salt Lake. Per the Nevada listserv, Rob Lowry also found one in Winnemucca yesterday. That's a very rare species to see anywhere in the northern Great Basin, any time of year -- but now two are being seen simultaneously, both within a stone's throw of I-80.
