Subject: [COBOL] Ft. Rock Raptor Survey
Kara Jakse, Diane Burgess and I did the Ft. Rock raptor survey today. A
beautiful day in the High Desert with temps hitting the low 60's. Besides
great birds we saw large numbers of Pronghorn Antelope (well over 200).
Today we counted 141 birds-of-prey. A little less than last year's 154 but
last year's count was done 11 days later. Nov 2016 (11/17) count was 165 and
2015 (11/16) was 146. Bald Eagle counts were low compared to last year but
not that out of line with the 2016 and 2015 counts (2 and 4 respectively).
Ferrugies were below last year's 26 but well above the 2016 and 15 counts (7
and 10 respectively). We did see two Dark Phase Rough-legged Hawks. Always a
pleasure to spot those.



Breakdown by species:



Red-tailed: 61

Roughy: 29

Ferruginous: 18

Unident Buteo: 4

Bald Eagle (adult): 2

Golden Eagle: 6

Harrier: 3

Kestrel: 10

Prairie Falcon: 4

Great Horned: 4



Regards,



Tom

Subject: [COBOL] crooked river wetland complex -- black phoebe, Eu Wigeon
Greetings COBOLers

I relocated the Black Phoebe reported Monday by Tom Mickel around 2:00 this
afternoon. I'm assuming its the same bird.

My encounter was in the vicinity of the willow clump near the boardwalk
that extends into the floodplain of the Crooked River. I first heard the
bird calling and then found it in the willows. It next flew into the
channel of the Crooked River straight out from the boardwalk. I bushwacked
through the dry riparian vegetation and observed it on the banks of the
river but never got a satisfactory photo.

Also witnessed a Peregrine Falcon flying at comet-speed take down a
ring-necked duck, carry it a hundred yards before landing and mantling the
bird for about 3 minutes. Then it mysteriously let it go (huh?). Not
organic enough? The duck flew (if that's what you call it?) about 20 yards
into a pond and looked like it had no more energy to go farther. Won't go
into details on its condition in this forum. Just lets say it looked grim.

Birds observed:

Canada Goose
Gadwall
American Wigeon
Eurasian Wigeon - 1 female
Mallard
N Pintail
N Shoveller
G-w Teal
Ring-necked Duck
Lesser Scaup
Bufflehead
Ruddy Duck
Pied-billed Grebe 1
Great-Blue Heron 1
Killdeer 3
Dunlin 9
Long-billed Dowitcher 3
Magpie 5

Peregrine Falcon 1
A Kestrel 2

A Pipit 1
Marsh Wren 2

Golden-crowned Sparrow 1

Good birding,

Mark

Subject: [COBOL] Long-tail Duck
A little more on the duck. Was quite a ways out and SE from the boat ramp. With one female Bufflehead. They then flew to the N. Shore and a little closer. Lost them when stopped to photo a Dipper that landed next to me by the boat ramp and when looked again could not find. Good scope view as was dead calm. Way to far out for good photos, at least by me.

Steve Shunk and I spent Tues. 11/13, on the ECAS Christmas Valley Raptor Survey under P. Cloudy Skies, Calm winds, and Temps. between 20 and 51 degrees F.  It turned out to be the 3rd highest Nov. count in the 15 year history.  We ended up with a 156 raptor count as well as lots of other critters to see. Steve was impressed with the African cattle with monster horns as well as the dragon.  It was a good day for Shrikes as we saw 3 Northern and 1 Loggerhead. We also saw about 150 Pronghorns in 2 herds, Mule deer groups in several locations, 3 Coyotes, 2 large flocks of Horned Larks and hundreds of Ravens everywhere. The Xmas Valley pond was mostly frozen but lots of geese and duck were on the east end open water. Even 3 Ring Billed Gulls were present.  We saw no Bald Eagles or Accipiters on the route.

Raptors Counted:

Red-tailed Hawk               56
American Kestrel              11
Northern Harrier               9
Golden Eagle                  12
Rough-legged Hawk             38
Ferruginous Hawk              18
Prairie Falcon                 6
Unident, Buteo                 6

Subject: [COBOL] ECAS Wednesday Birding - LONG-TAILED DUCK Suttle Lake
Birded feeders belonging to Jake Schas (thanks Jake), Best Western area
and on up to Suttle Lake, on this blustery day. Suttle Lake highlights
include a LONG-TAILED DUCK at campground end, both Goldeneye species, 1
Greater Scaup with 3 Lessers. Not all could see field marks
definitively. Choppy water made it difficult to scope for distant ducks
and impossible from the other end at the Day Use area. At the bridge
when entering the lodge area, 2 Am Dippers and 2 Yellow-rumps were nice.
In town at the Village Greens Park, our day ended with a flock of Wild
Turkeys in the park and Toni spotted another group a few blocks away.
Thanks to ebirders Diane Burgess and Mary Shivell and (?)others, and to
Toni and Mark who got photos to attach later to the ebird lists.

How are things in the Klamath Basin area with respect to air quality and
smoke the California fires? We were thinking about a Klamath trip over
Thanksgiving, but if visibility and air quality is poor then maybe we
should reconsider...

Thanks for any and all advice...

Subject: [COBOL] Redmond ponds, poss Herring Gull, mallards with fish!
Front pond is partially frozen, shallow where open and full of small
fish. Even Mallards were fishing although they didn's show any skill in
figuring out how to consume them. Most would swim to the shore with the
fish and try to maneuver it in their bill, losing it to a gull or
another Mallard most of the time. I saw 1 female actually swallow a fish
head first. Of course Mergansers and gulls demonstrated expertise with
fish catching and eating.

Gulls, well, as Clay and Scott A can attest from our recent Wednesday
trip to Summer Lake, I struggle with gulls. Feel free to question this
sighting. I saw a max of 8 gulls. At one point, i saw 2 that were
clearly larger than Common Mergansers ( 25 inches) and very bulky. I
could not see an orbital ring due to distance. Streaky head and neck,
large bill with a spot of orange. I did not see leg color although I
waited a long time studying all the gulls. Others, based on size,
yellow leg color, bills, and mantle grayness, I called the rest either
Ring-bills or California. Jeff Nordstrom was out there on his whirlwind
lunch break and mentioned having a Bonaparte's yesterday but it was not
present today. Three Dunlin came in prob while I was messing with the
gulls. Two LB Dowitchers were around. The 54 Common Mergansers were
accompanied by 2 Hooded Mergs but I could not find a Red-breasted and I
scanned the flock several times.

While the back ponds did not have any remarkable birds, the conditions
merit description. There are 4 diked ponds. Water is currently going
into pond 2 and 3. Pond #1 is dry. #2 has dry weedy vegetation with
water but zero birds. Looks fairly "sterile". Pond 3 had ducks and pond
4 was mostly half frozen, half thawing moist mud with many robins. I
looked carefully for shorebirds and only found Killdeer. No pipits,
bluebirds or even sparrows. I feel we birders are fortunate to have
access to Redmond Ponds.

Good birding, Judy, <jmeredit...>

Wind Energy and
Eagles

Dr. Roberto Albertani, PhD in Aerospace Engineering, is currently Associate
Professor and Boeing Professor in Mechanical Engineering at Oregon State
University, Oregon.

He spent 23 years in industry, working on military jet trainers, wind
turbines and fibers-reinforced polymer composite materials before going
back to academia. He was part of the sailing team for an Italian challenge
to the America’ s Cup and at the 1996 Olympics Games in Atlanta, GA.

His current research activities include design of micro air vehicles and
small UAVs, bio flight-mechanics, wind energy- wildlife interactions and

composites materials technologies.



Engineering Applied to Mitigate Wind Energy-Eagle Interactions

Endangered and protected avian and bat species casualties resulting from
interactions with land based and offshore wind turbines is a wildlife and
environmental concern. However, wind energy development is critical for
meeting future goals of lower carbon emissions into the atmosphere.

In this presentation, engineering methods to provide automatic eagle
detection and deterrent without affecting wind turbines operations thus
rendering wind energy more friendly to raptors will be illustrated.



The program will begin at 6:30 pm with a social half hour, followed by
announcements, and then the presentation. Beverages will be donated by
Strictly Organic Coffee. Nancy Merrick will provide mouth watering snacks.
This should be a very informative evening.

For the past few days we had between 13 and 15 species of birds at our
feeders which makes for a full deck (not cards).  We no longer have any
hummers but there was one on the heated feeder on the 6th. Today was
exceptional.  One EACH Cooper's and Sharp-shinned Hawks came through. 
Our little birds showed just HOW fast my restaurant is (not the
restaurant but the birds) in that they were able to elude both hawks. 
BOY, they are fast!  Both hawks were nice adult birds and I was able to
photograph both showing the tail ends.  And that ends the tail for the day

Subject: [COBOL] Crooked River Wetlands and Prineville Sewer Ponds Today
I spent a couple of hours at the Crooked River Wetlands and Prineville
Sewer Ponds.  Here are the highlights:

Prineville Sewer Ponds - Good numbers of birds but nothing particularly
rare.  I saw the first Common Goldeneyes of the season and found a
Western Grebe there.  Check the ECAS Facebook page for some nice Wood
Duck photos with water reflections.

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49829376

Crooked River Wetlands - Many of the plant covered ponds have been
drained.  Not quite sure why but only a couple of Marsh Wrens today and
no rails.  The open ponds had a nice mix of regular ducks.  There are a
few shorebirds still around.  i found Dunlin, Long-billed Dowitcher,
Greater Yellowlegs and Least Sandpiper.  I thought I had a few Western
Sandpipers which would be a bit late for them but I lost the birds I was
following and couldn't re-find them.  One Cackling Goose flew over and a
Common Merganser was in with the other ducks.  Common Merg is pretty
common but I don't remember seeing it in the wetlands ponds before.

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49832306

That's it.  Taking my nephews up Grizzly tomorrow.  Hope we find some
Rosy Finches.

Kei and I hiked Hatfield yesterday and had some great looks at three
juvenile Snow Geese, Dowitchers, many ducks, LOTS of Robins one of which
looked like it had been dunked and held under by its buddies. What a
wreck!  But what was the most fun was today when we had a Downy
Woodpecker and a Red-shafted Flicker having a fight.  The Flicker was on
the suet and the Downy wanted some. Tried to sneak a bite on the south
side of the block while the Flicker was on the north but kept seeing if
the Flicker was still there upon which the Flicker would chase it off. 
This went on for quite some time.  FUN!

works better for you because the organizers are trying to decide on the

No Rusty Blackbird again today, but 3 Swamp Sparrows were feeding together in marsh South of parking area at 3.20pm, and earlier Craig and Marilyn Miller was alerted to the presence of a Barred Owl close to Ryan's Meadow which we saw very well. Quite birdless on the Slough this afternoon, saw only 1 Snipe, the only Ducks were on the river. A different group of 4 White-fronts passed over and a Northern Harrier was hunting close by.

Paul and other Non-Ebirders,

You don’t have to ask where a location is if there is a link to an Ebird checklist. Simply click on the link and the checklist will open. The first line will list “Location.” Next to the name is a link to a Google Map (in this case this one https://www.google.com/maps/place/43%C2%B056'40.1%22N+121%C2%B025'51.4%22W/@43.944468,-121.430932,13z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x0!8m2!3d43.944468!4d-121.430932 ). There you can zoom in or out to your heart’s content, switch between road and satellite views to figure out where it is, how to get there and the like. Unfortunately it won’t turn into a paper map, but you can print it.

In this instance the Rusty Blackbird was north of the red pin along the south end of the pond in the picture. It was actively feeding from noon till 1:15 (after not being seen from 10 – noon). After feeding it disappears into some of the willows until it decides to feed again.

REMEMBER to set your clocks back on Sunday morning.

Expect to walk 2 to 3+ miles, stay out as long as your life allows.
Schedule calls for Hatfield Lake and then river trails. Since the locals
did Bend area river trails last week, maybe for those who want to stay
out longer, after Hatfield, go to Aspen, Ryan Meadow, or Slough for the
birds. Peter's report of Swamp Sparrow at Slough, near the Rusty
blackbird haunts, might be fun to seek. No reports of Rusty today on
COBOL or ebird but no negative reports. I won't see you this Wednesday,
as I will be out of town.

Carpooling
Bend, Nancy P's Bakery at 8 a.m. and go to WBU/Barnes anad Noble and
then on to Hatfield
Redmond, 7:45 at Starbucks Nolan Center and go to Hatfield to meet the
group at the gate
Sisters, 7:30 at Village Greens and go to Hatfield to meet the group at
the gate.
Anyone else, east Bend, at back of parking by WBU and Barnes and Noble
at 8:15 or Hatfield by 8:25

Directions for Hatfield Lake and for Slough are on the ECAS birding
locations maintained by Chuck Gates. Good Birding, Judy,

with the wing and the bald went back to the shore to finish up what had

around there on the ground. Mike Golden is on the way there.

If you have time, today would be good to visit. Possibly pertinent, one

* Wind Energy and
Eagles*

Dr. Roberto Albertani, PhD in Aerospace Engineering, is currently Associate
Professor and Boeing Professor in Mechanical Engineering at Oregon State
University, Oregon.

He spent 23 years in industry, working on military jet trainers, wind
turbines and fibers-reinforced polymer composite materials before going
back to academia. He was part of the sailing team for an Italian challenge
to the America’ s Cup and at the 1996 Olympics Games in Atlanta, GA.

His current research activities include design of micro air vehicles and
small UAVs, bio flight-mechanics, wind energy- wildlife interactions and

composites materials technologies.


*Engineering Applied to Mitigate Wind Energy-Eagle Interactions *

Endangered and protected avian and bat species casualties resulting from
interactions with land based and offshore wind turbines is a wildlife and
environmental concern. However, wind energy development is critical for
meeting future goals of lower carbon emissions into the atmosphere.

In this presentation, engineering methods to provide automatic eagle
detection and deterrent without affecting wind turbines operations thus
rendering wind energy more friendly to raptors will be illustrated.


The program will begin at 6:30 pm with a social half hour, followed by
announcements, and then the presentation. Beverages will be donated by
Strictly Organic Coffee. Nancy Merrick will provide mouth watering snacks.
This should be a very informative evening.

Birders,
The ECAS newsletter mentioned CBCs in the area. In addition to those,
the Sisters CBC is on Sunday, Dec 16 and Summer Lake is Tuesday, Dec 18.
Tygh Valley is not up on the OBA website yet but typically a couple of
carloads from central Oregon have enjoyed helping with that CBC.
Wednesday Birders try to do some of these counts which may have barely
enough birders. We always have a lot of fun. Mark your calendars and
contact the compilers as it is not too soon to do that. Links for them
are on the page with links in the newsletter. (

Subject: [COBOL] juncos with conjunctivitis
Sorry to report we are having Juncos coming with conjunctivitis (also
called House Finch Disease). It is a respiratory infection that causes a
horrible infection in the eyes, eventually blinding them (thus they hit
windows more) (does not transfer to mammals). It is not really treatable as
its highly contagious to other small birds a bacteria. (ex: started in
house finch, went to golds, now in juncos). We will take any you can get,
and please report any that you know have died.

Please watch for birds sitting on the feeders inactive or seemingly
lethargic, not flying with the flock, sitting in a water bath. Butterfly
nets work great for catching these birds.

Help by keeping feeders and bird baths clean and bleached (wood is less
desirable as its not easy to sterilize. Also, keep the ground under feeders
or where your juncos are feeding clean by raking up debris. If you have or
had a sick bird remove the first inch of soil from under the feeders and
hose down bushes they hang out in. Be sure to not leave a bleach film in
your feeders.

Hi Everyone,

Repeated attempts to contact Merle over the last month have failed to make a connection. If you are reading this Merle or if any of you know that he might have a new email address, could you please have him contact me, it’s about his participation in the raptor project this winter that got underway today. Thank you!

Subject: [COBOL] ECAS Wednesday, to Fort Rock and Summer Lake
This report was mailed for Judy Meredith by http://birdnotes.net
Four of us spent some time at Fort Rock with raptors and not much else.
But 10 Ferruginous Hawks there made us quite pleased. NO FALCONS at all
today, no Prairie at Fort Rock, not even a Kestrel anywhere when birding
all day in decent habitat. Saw a few Shrike today, some Northerns for
sure, and a couple that have to go down as sp. due to brief or poor
views. Judy scheduled Summer Lake during hunting season, so we didn't
even see a single goose! Harriers were out in numbers. Few songbirds
except one flock of 40 or 50 sparrows near the day use area in Summer
Lake Date. Beautiful, sometimes gray sky with no rain was good for
viewing. Abbrev below are FR for Fort Rock, SL for Summer Lake.

Subject: Re: [COBOL] Rusty Blackbird continues at Slough Day Use Area
Paul and other Non-Ebirders,



You don’t have to ask where a location is if there is a link to an Ebird checklist. Simply click on the link and the checklist will open. The first line will list “Location.” Next to the name is a link to a Google Map (in this case this one https://www.google.com/maps/place/43%C2%B056'40.1%22N+121%C2%B025'51.4%22W/@43.944468,-121.430932,13z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x0!8m2!3d43.944468!4d-121.430932 ). There you can zoom in or out to your heart’s content, switch between road and satellite views to figure out where it is, how to get there and the like. Unfortunately it won’t turn into a paper map, but you can print it.



In this instance the Rusty Blackbird was north of the red pin along the south end of the pond in the picture. It was actively feeding from noon till 1:15 (after not being seen from 10 – noon). After feeding it disappears into some of the willows until it decides to feed again.

Hi all,

Just got to work after watching the rusty this morning. Courtney refound it still on the pond margins just north of Slough Day Use Area at about 8. I joined her shortly after and we watched it for 30 minutes or so. Thanks to Evan for the find,Tom for posting to COBOL yesterday, and Courtney for flagging me down this morning.

It's habits included feeding on the green pond margins on the south side of the pond and then flying up into the willows and lodgepole pines a few feet away. Then back. Excellent, prolonged views. Always associated with several robins, which it seemed to bully.

Other interesting birds included a cackler with some greater white fronts, loads of green-winged teal, and a pile of snipe.

Subject: [COBOL] Metolius Preserve: Black-back, Goshawk, Ruffed Grouse
Greetings, All,
Christine Elder and I took a lovely hike today at the Deschutes Land
Trust's (DLT) Metolius Preserve, in Jefferson County. Our species list was
typically short for this season and habitat type, but we had a few big
highlights. For those who have not been there, access and other details can
be found at this page on the DLT website
<https://www.deschuteslandtrust.org/protected-lands/metolius-preserve>.


*Shortly after DLT purchased the property from Willamette Industries, in
2003, I ran 5 years of bird surveys here from 2004 to 2008. I would be
happy to forward the 5-year report to anyone who requests it.*

Starting at the north trailhead, we hiked a total of about 2.5 miles,
crossing at the bridge over the north fork of Lake Creek and continuing
counter-clockwise around the main loop on the north parcel of the preserve.
The larch trees were all at various stages of 'molt', offering a wonderful
golden contrast to the evergreen conifers (larch is a deciduous conifer).

The first 'big' bird was spotted by Christine. My strong reliance on aural
bird cues occasionally results in me walking right by silent birds.
Christine is more visually oriented. I was walking ahead of her by about 30
m, and she called to me after I had passed the spot. She had her binoculars
in one hand and the other hand waving to me to come back. Not 2 m off the
trail, an adult male RUFFED GROUSE stood on a small stump, raising his
crest and checking us out. He soon flew directly away.

Out to the eastern end of the loop, we heard some loud woodpecker feeding
sounds. The hammering seemed slow and deep, and I was sure it was a
Pileated, but this was partly based on my experience at the preserve. I was
a little surprised to find a male BLACK-BACKED WOODPECKER feeding on a very
large ponderosa pine snag at the middle fork of Lake Creek. This habitat
has not burned in quite some time, so we would say that this bird was
foraging in 'green forest'.

Shortly after we crossed the creek and walked into an open stand, we heard
and then saw an adult NORTHERN GOSHAWK, flying west along the north fork of
Lake Creek. We had heard an Accipiter earlier in the hike, but I couldn't
quite ID it to species. As we walked toward where we had seen this first
bird, another adult burst out of the trees and flew to the east. Seeing one
goshawk is always exciting, but two?!

In my five years of surveys on the Metolius Preserve, I never detected any
of these three species. Granted, the surveys were conducted in breeding
season, and these could have been birds dispersing from nearby nesting
territories. In any case, it was a fun short hike in our virtual backyard.

The eBird checklist is below. Contact me directly with any questions.

Subject: [COBOL] Two Tennessee Warblers in one day
Hi all,

Pete Low and I birded Wickiup Reservoir yesterday, and as Judy Meredith
reported to COBOL, we found two different Tennessee Warblers within a
quarter mile (and minutes) of each other.

One was at the Wickiup Butte Boat Ramp (about a half mile southeast of the
dam), presumably the same bird Pete found there on Saturday, the day
previous. This bird had a very prominent supercilium:

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49533373

The other was just down the road in the big willow patch at Wickiup Butte
Campground. This bird had a more normal attenuated supercilium for a
Tennessee Warbler.

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49539871

So, they were definitely two different birds. It is remarkable that two
birds of this rarity for Central Oregon were found at a record late date
for Central Oregon, so close to each other.

Wonders never cease!

Cheers,

Craig Miller
Bend

Subject: [COBOL] Willow Creek Canyon- Madras
We walked a few miles down Willow Canyon from the train trestle. 65 degrees. The willows are golden and were filled with numerous yellow-rumped warblers seemingly everywhere we looked. A flock of 40-50 bushtits moved through. We heard and saw many ruby-crowned kinglets. Saw one sharp shinned hawk interacting with two ravens as well as a redtailed hawk. Other birds include black-billed magpies, Townsend’s solitaire, American Goldfinch, white-crowned sparrows, one rock wren, three canyon wrens, robins and a few juncos. Chris and Pam Scranton

Subject: [COBOL] Trout Creek and Deschuttes River
Thursday we drove down to Trout Creek and walked two miles upstream on the Deschuttes. There were 7 red-tailed hawks, three kestrels and two bald eagles on Clark Drive. Also over 100 mallards in the first pond along the road. Later, on the way home by the same pond there were at least 500 assorted brewer’s blackbirds and starlings with a few red-winged blackbirds mixed in. The most interesting bird of the day was a pure white male ring-necked pheasant near Water Pump Park in Gateway. We were unable to get a photo as it ran into the brush within seconds of stopping the car. It is the only complete albino pheasant we have ever seen.
The birding along the river was very slow with the exception of Townsend’s Solitares singing from numerous junipers. Saw a flock of perhaps 40 bush tits, 2 song sparrows, two canyon wrens, a few juncos, a few white-crowned sparrows, 6 canada geese, 20 mallards, 1 DC Cormorant, a few robins, 2 ravens, 2 magpies, 1 golden-crowned kinglet and two ruby-crowned kinglets.
On the way back we stopped at the marshy pond just before Gateway and heard a virginia rail. A beautiful day if not lots of species. Chris and Pam Scranton

Hi all,

Pete Low found a Tennessee Warbler at Wickiup Butts Boat Ramp (east side of
Wickiup Reservoir) shortly after noon today. It was mixed in with a lot of
Ruby-crowned Kinglets in the willows around there. It then flew into some
pine trees and disappeared. He has not been able to relocate it as of now
(1:00 pm)

Good birding,

Craig Miller

Fifteen of us enjoyed 126 birds on this trip, and some saw more birds!
We started with Philomath Sewage Ponds for
DICKCISSEL and LAPLAND LONGSPURS and 9 sparrow species in total. Nice
waterfowl also. We spent the afternoon and evening with Laura and
Darrell Faxon east of Newport on their property for MOUNTAIN QUAIL,
WESTERN SCREECH OWLs and NORTHERN SAW WHET OWlS among other nice birds
for the coast. Views were good of birds we go to the coast for,
including Harlequin Ducks, 3 Scoter species, 3 Loons, etc. PALM
WARBLERS are another species that is difficult to find at home but we
enjoyed 2 of them hawking insects. Marty Bray and Jeannie Heltzel helped
us for that day, seeing some locations that were new to most of us. A
seawatch and finishing at Waite Ranch out of Florence were highlights
also. A major highlight was the group of good humored and patient
birders. On the return home, a stop at Fern Ridge was good for
shorebirds and more later on that! We missed Rock Sandpiper and Swamp
Sparrow on this trip. Perhaps this trip will repeat next fall, at a
slightly later date. Thanks to ECAS for trips and fun birders, Judy
Meredith, <jmeredit...>

Our last count day saw 28 raptors move through. The smokey day was
cloudless and nearly windless with temps. from 54 to 61. The morning was
very slow with more participants than birds that passed to the east. Five
flocks of Greater White-fronts headed south in the course of the day with
several Snow Geese mixed in totaling approximately 300 birds. The low
count briefly tempted us to switch to being goose counters. As usual, the
pace picked up in mid afternoon with some great looks as birds passed low
overhead after weak thermals developed.

2 Bald Eagles
1 Northern Harrier
12 Sharp-shinned Hawk
2 Cooper's Hawk
6 Red-tailed Hawk
1 Rough-legged Hawk
1 Peregrine Falcon
1 Unid. Accipiter
2 Unid. Raptor (last bird of the day possible Goshawk)

Observers were Peter Low, Kim Boddie, David Braunschweiger, Leanna Taylor,
Joel Tinsley and two visitors.

Some of us are going on the longer trip to the coast. For those birders
at home, the local birding will be Deschutes river trails around Bend,
which could include 1st street Rapids, Old Mill, Sawyer Park, etc.
Probably safest to all meet at Nancy P's Bakery at 8 a.m. and decide as
a group where to begin birding.

Carpooling
Redmond Starbucks 7:15 and go to Nancy P's, 1054 NW Milwaukee
Bend, Nancy P's at 8
Sisters, Village greens 7:15 and go to Nancy P's

Sherrie Pierce has the radios.

The next week, all day, Summer Lake and Fort Rock. Good birding, Judy,

Subject: [COBOL] Crane Coots
I kayaked the northeast end of the lake this morning and there were indeed
thousands of coots there. The bald eagles must have their own message board
- two were perched in the trees watching the show as was a merlin. But the
100 or so ring-billed gulls were the ones hassling the coots - chasing one
at a time to take its place (or maybe just to watch it walk on water as it
tried to fly away.) Mixed in with the coots were 70 wigeon, 60 bufflehead,
30 mallards, 7 shovelers, and 6 pied billed grebes.

Going to guess the bald eagles are checking out this post, and will be at
Crane Prairie shortly ... ;-)

Subject: [COBOL] Green Ridge today
A total of 18 participants and visitors enjoyed a cloudless fall day that
started and ended in the 60's. 1-3 mph winds primarily from the NE were
not the most favorable for migrants but we still had 52 raptors move
through. The majority of the birds passed at distance and at moderate
heights on the east side of the ridge.

3 Bald Eagle
12 Sharp-shinned Hawk
8 Cooper's Hawk
1 Northern Goshawk
17 Red-tailed Hawk
1 Rough-legged Hawk
3 Golden Eagle
3 Merlin
3 Unid. Accipiter
1 Unid. Buteo

Tomorrow is our last scheduled day of the season so if you snooze you loose.

Subject: [COBOL] Great Gray Owl - Black Butte Ranch
I caught a glimpse of what I thought might be a Great Gray Owl back on
October 4th while we were on one of our favorite walks at Black Butte
Ranch. And, today we repeated the walk but kept our border collie, Remy,
close as we approached the area where I thought she flushed a large gray
bird sixteen days ago. It was a strategy that paid off! This has been a
nemesis species for us and while I won't bore you with the miles we have
driven and hiked to find one of these birds on our own, we will say that
after all of our effort it was absolutely thrilling to locate one so close
to home!

Forwarding -
Cobol -


I found a spotting scope and tripod at the MedcoA site of Lost Creek
Lake (Jackson, Co) today.
It was just standing there when we arrived. No cars to be seen. Nobody
around.
No answer to my yelled inquiries.
So: I’ve got it. Contact me off list to identify the gear and arrange
recovery.

Subject: [COBOL] ECAS Wednesday a.m. around Sunriver
Nice day to be out birding once the sun got beyond the treetops and the
frost cleared. Milt Vine had scouted recently. Today he led us around
what spots he found better for birds now. Most of us had never been to
the ponds around clubhouse at Woodlands, and it was a treat. The Evening
Grosbeaks in lodgepoles there were great. Not so great was seeing a
small flock of shorebirds, larger peeps, fly off, never to be relocated.
We did have 8 Wilson's Snipe at that pond and a small flock of Greater
White-fronted Geese. We scanned a lot all morning trying to find
Red-shouldered Hawks but did not succeed. The Am pipits in muddy areas
and yellow-rumps scattered in willows were active. Thanks to Milt for
ebirding.
