Subject: [COBOL] Of House Wren and Pinyon Jays
Greetings, Found a House Wren flitting around and fly catching at the SOAR building just to the west of Sisters High School yesterday-9-17-18.


In the course of my work day/week I have found numerous flocks of Pinyon Jays. One flock is in and round Aspen Lake. I find them along Green Drake road. This a gated area. Seems to be around 100 in this flock. It has been around for at least 4 weeks now.


A smaller flock is about 3 miles north or so of Aspen Lake on Old Military Road. This flock is about 25 birds.


Another flock for the same time frame is just north of the Trappers Point subdivision in Sisters. This in on the Crooked Horse Shoe street, which is off of Camp Polk. About 50 in this flock.


The flock that likes the Frisbee course near Sisters High School is around 100 or so.


Now out in the Tollgate subdivision the flock is around 75. This flock seems to be of a more of a hit and miss flock.


Another consistent flock is on Quail Tree Road. This the first road on the right as you go west up the "Dry Canyon" grade about 8 miles east of Sisters. This is really Deep Canyon, but some of us know of it as Dry Canyon. This flock is around 75 birds.


Since I am using loud and noisy machinery, I miss a lot of the jays. Usaully I see/hear them at lunch and between jobs. I will start bring my binos to look for red bands.


later jake

Anyone know if they are still there? Or seen any other large flocks (or

Subject: [COBOL] Ochoco Quest (Mt Quail and Dusky Grouse)
Today I was joined by Don Sutherland and Jim Moodie.  Our goal was to
scale the high Ochocos in search of the elusive Mountain Quail and Dusky
Grouse.  On the Summit Road (Forest Road 27), we spooked a Dusky Grouse
out of a tree and got a brief look before it disappeared into the
forest.  Meanwhile, we were stopping every time we came across
appropriate Mt Quail habitat and playing the MOQU call.  Finally, after
about a dozen attempts, we got an answer.  At least two adults were
calling and sounding their falcon-like assembly call so we assumed there
were several young with them.  After a few moments, the calls ceased. 
We scanned the hillside in an attempt to view the birds working away
from us.  We failed to get even a fleeting glimpse.  Still a good morning.

We then toured the Crooked River Wetlands and found only one peep (a
Western Sandpiper), a few Long-billed Dowitchers and 6-7 Greater Yellowlegs.

We ended the day at Zalunardo Pond in Powell Butte where we struck out
on Northern Waterthrush and Black Phoebe (Cindy looked later in the day
and failed to find either).

Subject: [COBOL] ECAS Birders' Night this Thursday September 20, 2018
* An ECAS reminder: *Join us Thursday September 20th at the Environmental
Center, 16 NW Kansas Ave., Bend, OR 97701 at 6:30pm for a
*Southern African Safari with a Focus on Birds with Gary and Lynn Clark.*
As part of their seasonal migration, Gary and Lynn Clark spent most of
this past February and March in Southern Africa. Three weeks of that trip
were devoted to a Safari in northern Botswana comprised of a mix of lodges
and mobile tent-camps in reserves and national parks. Visits to Chobe
National Park and Moremi Reserve in the Okovango Delta as well as to
Deception Valley in the central Kalahari provided three diverse habitats in
which to observe and photograph the wildlife, with a heavy emphasis on the
native birds.

The presentation will be in the form of a video, with motion and still
shots shown against a background of African music. The presenters have
utilized this format in two previous presentations to ECAS: Costa Rica +
Morocco, and Ecuador.

Gary's photos have appeared on the national Audubon Calendar, the on-line
Audubon Field Guide, and represent hundreds of species on Wikipedia as well
as bird-specific web sites. When not in quest of photographs of exotic
birds in wild places, the Clarks live in Bend.

There will be a social half hour followed by announcements and then the
featured presentation. Coffee will be donated by Strictly Organic Coffee
and delectable treats will provided by Nancy Merrick. This should be a
wonderful evening. Gary's and Lynn's previous presentations have been
stunning.

Subject: [COBOL] Green Ridge on Wednesday
Thanks to Sherrie for sending out the meeting details. I would like to
notify anyone planning on attending that it's a good idea to bring a
folding chair along with food, water, insect repellent and sunscreen.
It looks like Wednesday will be a sunny day with light winds. The
elevation up there is above 5500 ft so cool temps are possible and the
sun can burn you quickly. Good hawk activity depends a bit on the wind
so be prepared for stretches of time when there is little activity.
This can be punctuated by waves of hawks on the move. Our plan is to be
at the Hawkwatch site for 3-4 hours.

Subject: [COBOL] RBA: Magnolia Warbler Hatfield Lake
About an hour ago I had a Magnolia Warbler at the second pond at Hatfield
Lake. There was a huge movement of mainly Yellow-rumped Warblers. I had
over 100, plus 8 Orange-crowned and the one Magnolia. It was along the
south shore where it then curves to the south (near the elevated rock
outcropping). There are two juniper trees there, one of which is dead (and
brown). As I was trying to photograph some Yellow-rumps, the Magnolia
popped up showing a bright yellow chest, marked with dark stipes on the
side. The back was gray. It had two wing bars, the bottom one more
distinct. It showed a white eyering and a faint eyeline. The undertail
coverts were white. I put down the binoculars and picked up the camera and
the bird dove into the juniper, out of sight. I pished, hoping the bird
would come out. Several Yellow-rumpeds did, but the Magnolia stayed hidden.
I stayed for 15 minutes and walked around to the other side, but never got
another view of the bird. Many warblers were also in the trees along the
road adjacent to the second pond, but I never saw anything other than
Yellow-rumpeds there.

My wife , Kei, and I are back from the south (think LA, CA) and boy did
we see something strange.  I beautiful La Verne (east of Hollywood) is a
really nice big resevoir, FULL of water.  My sister likes to jog there
but I wanted to photo birds, like well DUH!  Jumped out of the car,
grabbed my camera, turned around and saw--- wait for it--- a bird I had
NEVER seen before.  Long black tail, coloring and relative body size
(except for the tail) of a Chickadee, EXCEPT for the bright orange
beak!  Oh, and the beak was quite large, kind'a like a Cardinal.  And
that TAIL-- like a Magpie, like a really LLOONNG tail.  Click, click,
click. Got enough shots to get and ID.  Not in any of MY books.  Might
be something from say Africa??  Called and left a note to LA Audubon.

Ring.  "Yes, we DO have birds like you describe".  "It IS from Africa
and DOESN'T belong here in southern California.  It is a Pin-tailed
Whydah".  'A WHADD'A, I ask?'  "A w,h,y,d,a,h" says the nice lady on the
phone.  Thank you mam.  Now I really DO have a story to tell.  Don't
believe me?  Check out these shots on my web site.  And by the way I am
told that the ones w/o the bright orange beaks (there were THREE of
them) are this season's fledglings!  A complete family of Pin-tailed
Whydahs.  Right there in beautiful La Verne, California.

Subject: [COBOL] Yard notes and more
There is still one Say's phoebe hanging around near the house. I have been hearing/seeing it in the early evening when I'm out walking my dogs. I have also been hearing a common poorwill calling not too far from the house the last couple of mornings, just before sunrise (today at 5:50 a.m.). Had our first golden-crowned sparrows of the fall this morning. Saw them feeding in the purslane off the front yard.

On another note, last week a friend stopped by the bookstore and we were talking about birds when he told me about a really interesting things he saw up at Round Lake (west of Sisters, up towards the Mt. Jefferson Wilderness area). A week ago Friday, he and his mom went up there and to his surprise, there were 12-15 Lewis's woodpeckers sallying/ bugging around the lake. It was such a sight to see that he went back on Saturday and again on Sunday to watch them. He got a great photo of one perched on the edge of a snag. Has anyone else ever been up there and noted the number of Lewis's that my friend Eric saw? Just curious. He'd never seen one before and was just thrilled by the numbers he did see.

Subject: [COBOL] LITTLE STINT still at North Wickiup Boat Ramp, Deschutes County
OBOL and COBOLanders,

This morning, Randy Sinnott and Dave Westerfield from Eugene and I met by happenstance near the North Wickiup Boat Ramp. Randy and Dave were searching for the stint, but didn't know the area well. Based on Peter Low's excellent directions, we walked out to the area where the bird seen yesterday; a small flock of peeps including Western and Baird's Sandpipers were foraging and flying in this area. A Cooper's Hawk flew over and scattered the flock before we could glass them well. Shortly after, two birds flew in front of us: a Baird's Sandpiper and what we believe is the LITTLE STINT. Between Randy and I, we took over 150 photos. I've posted several on eBird (link below) and will add a few more after I've had time to sort through them. The images are cropped, but I believe show the features of the bird well enough for a positive ID. Bob Sizoo and Evan Thomas were walking out towards the area when we were leaving around 1230 hours.

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48423922


The bird is to the east of the boat ramp. If you park at the boat ramp and walk east approximately 1/2 mile you should be in the right area where the bird is being seen. I've included a google map with the approximate location. The water is way down, so, no you don't have to walk on water to get to the spot.

Cheers and good luck if you take up the chase!

Subject: [COBOL] Wickiup sabine's Gull and Little Stint

Hi all,
The Stint today proved to be a little confusing seeing it in different light this morning. It did not look so Rufous, but further scrutiny proved it to be the same bird. The bird would often get flushed by spooked Blackbirds, Killdeer or large Falcons just at the most inappropriate time, for me that is.
The bird was clearly a Stint by short fine tipped bill, and long Primary Projection, I ruled out Red-necked Stint by, among other things, Rufous edged dark centered upper and lower Scapulars, Rufous edged dark centered Tertials, i.e. no contrast between upper and lower Scapulars. Also, White face, dark crown with split Supercillium seen when closer and prominent mantle lines.
Directions: from North Wickiup Boat Ramp walk East following Tree line and beyond until you will see a large area mostly clear of Tree stumps, it frequents this area along with Western, Least, Pectoral and Baird's Sandpiper.Only only One of the later seen today.
This morning around 8.00am was a very nice adult Sabine's Gull straight out off the North Wickiup Boat Ramp. I looked again mid day but did not see it.

Peter Low.

Subject: [COBOL] A call for LOB volunteers for a new technology project
Lights Out Bend (LOB) is an ECAS project concerned with reducing nighttime light. Light pollution is the cause for the nearly 1 billion bird v window collisions resulting in injury and most often death. Light pollution affects human health and is now thought to be responsible for Circadian rhythm and melatonin disruption, breast and other cancers, depression, vision loss and more. Because of global light pollution, 80 percent of Americans and one-third of humanity cannot see the Milky Way. Our night sky, which we once took for granted, is no more. For more details: https://www.lightsoutbend.com <https://www.lightsoutbend.com/>


LOB has written a grant proposal for funds to be spent on mobile and static luminosity meters. These data will yield light pollution aka "skyglow" measurements around Central Oregon. This mobile luminosity meter--mounted on a car--aligned with camera, GPS and computer will aim to quantitatively measure and interpret skyglow measurements to better understand local light pollution. LOB will be needing volunteers interested in helping gather the mobile data-- driving for 2-3 hours on moon-less nights of 8 October, 7 November, 6 December, weather permitting. Any interested volunteers please email Dr Bill Kowalik @ <wsk412...> <mailto:<wsk412...>

Hi all,

Pete Low found what appears to be a Red-necked Stint, likely a different
bird than the Little Stint that he found yesterday afternoon near the same
location.

It is located at the North Wickiup boat ramp - walk east from there along

the mud flats.

He is there looking at it now.

220 Vaux's Swift entering the Chimney of the Episcopal Church on 1st and

Greetings, I visited Whiskey Spring this morning. The springs are attracting all sorts of hornets, wasps, bees, and many other biting and non-biting bugs and insects. So bewarned if you are jittery with these types of bug around your head and body.


The birds would stop by in waves and stay for 20 minutes or so. At times the numbers of birds coming in and out was a bit much, plus all the hornets and wasps. Nice thou. A hornet eating Red-breasted Nuthatch was interesting.

Subject: [COBOL] Interesting Orange-crowned Warbler? among a warbler flock this morning Deschutes River Woods, 5 miles SW of Bend, Deschutes County
COBOLanders and OBOLanders,

This morning during a flurry of migrant activity at one of our water features, I had a bird that didn't look quite right for an Orange-crowned Warbler or a Nashville.

I was able to snap a few photos and post to eBird under Warbler sp.

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48367487

The white eyering looks complete rather than broken, and I didn't notice any hint of an eyeline, but the head is greenish, not gray like a Nashville. The undertail tail feathers appear whitish as well rather than yellowish for Nashville or Orange-crown.

The bill appears small and pointed. Appreciate any feedback about this bird when you have time to peek at it. Sorry I couldn't get better photos; very skittish around the water and in the aspens.

cheers,
Jim

Join us Thursday September 20th at the Environmental Center, 16 NW Kansas
Ave., Bend, OR 97701 at 6:30pm for a
*Southern African Safari with a Focus on Birds with Gary and Lynn Clark.*
As part of their seasonal migration, Gary and Lynn Clark spent most of
this past February and March in Southern Africa. Three weeks of that trip
were devoted to a Safari in northern Botswana comprised of a mix of lodges
and mobile tent-camps in reserves and national parks. Visits to Chobe
National Park and Moremi Reserve in the Okovango Delta as well as to
Deception Valley in the central Kalahari provided three diverse habitats in
which to observe and photograph the wildlife, with a heavy emphasis on the
native birds.

The presentation will be in the form of a video, with motion and still
shots shown against a background of African music. The presenters have
utilized this format in two previous presentations to ECAS: Costa Rica +
Morocco, and Ecuador.

Gary's photos have appeared on the national Audubon Calendar, the on-line
Audubon Field Guide, and represent hundreds of species on Wikipedia as well
as bird-specific web sites. When not in quest of photographs of exotic
birds in wild places, the Clarks live in Bend.

There will be a social half hour followed by announcements and then the
feature presentation. Coffee will be donated by Strictly Organic Coffee and
delectable treats will provided by Nancy Merrick. This should be a
wonderful evening. Gary's and Lynn's previous presentations have been
stunning.

Hi all,
I camped at Davis Lake this past weekend; saw lots of birds but unfortunately my time here was cut short due to heavy smoke rolling in Sunday afternoon. Some highlights included an adult Red-shouldered Hawk on Burgess Road at the Little Deschutes, great looks at a juvenile Goshawk that almost landed on the Yellow gate on Wickiup Dam about 20 yards from me. At Wickiup Butte Boat Ramp, the exposed mud held a large flock of peeps that included 750 Western, 25 Baird's, 4 Semipalmated and 1 Pectoral Sandpiper. My camp spot on Davis Lake had Black-backed Woodpecker and Northern Pygmy Owl, and a Ten Mile hike to Bobby Lake produced American Three-toed Woodpecker and another Black-back. Back at Wickiup Kiosk Ponds was single juvenile Sagebrush Sparrow, running around with it's tail in the air like when a Chipmunk bolts across the road. Could it be One of the Birds seen 8/4/18? The Solitary Sandpiper was again in furthest pond West, it was amusing to watch it thrash around and dive und
er Water, looked like it was just enjoying life.

Subject: [COBOL] Possible Great-tailed Grackle at River Bend Park
Hi all,

I got a glimpse of what I can only assume was a great-tailed grackle out
the window about 30 minutes ago (~2:15) atop a juniper on the cliffs above
the footbridge connecting Farewell Park to Riverbend Park (north / west
side).

I was on the phone and without binos, so I couldn't get for-sure looks, but
in good strong light I saw an all-black bird with a big flat head and
chunky curved bill, about 100 yards away. It flew off in the moment I
looked away and I never saw the tail.

I went looking as soon as I could, but didn't relocate it in the immediate
vicinity. Thought I'd post here in case anyone was interested in searching.
I can't confirm the ID, but I can't rationalize what it might have been
otherwise.

Subject: [COBOL] Yard this and that
A few things of note I thought I'd pass on.

One day last week, two Cedar Waxwings in the Mountain Ash; on Saturday a
dozen of them in the choke cherries.

After disappearing in July after a very successful nesting season out here,
four Brewer's blackbirds yesterday.

Another disappearing act returned today: A Say's phoebe bugging in the
yard.

Common poorwill calling off the driveway on the north side of the house
early this morning.

The California quail were VERY successful this year. One day in mid-August
my husband counted 60+ birds in combined broods. And on Friday, the last
day of August, he saw 4 cottonballs with legs moving across the lawn. They
were so small that they disappeared from view into the grass (note to self:
mow the lawn). He saw them again today, only 4 with one male and two
females.

Last Saturday evening I believe it was, 125-130 pinyon jays flew in in the
early evening (duly report to Kevin Smith). We have yet to see any banded
jays, but are keeping an eye out for them.

And that's it for now!

Finishing up some sage grouse work in the Trout Creek Mountains on Friday and Saturday. This posting is for Saturday, since Friday was to hectic to recount none sage grouse birds.

All,
This evening, four of us were excited to watch 255 Vaux's Swifts dive into
the brick chimney at the bend boys and girls club. It all happened in about
8 minutes, ending at 758 PM. It was also fun to watch them swirl around for
the half hour in advance. Good times.

Subject: [COBOL] North Shore Road Today
The last time I went to North Shore Road (east end of Prineville
Reservoir) was 2 weeks ago and I only found a couple of migrants. I went
again today and things have definitely changed.  There were several
large migrating mixed flocks that consisted of warblers, sparrows and a
single empid flycatcher.  The treat for the day was a total of 17
Blue-gray Gnatcatchers.  They were in 4 different areas and in groups of
9, 5, 2 and 1.  You can see pictures at
https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48268124 and
https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48267137. I checked the mud flats at
Prineville Reservoir (Jasper Point) but the only shorebird I found was
Killdeer.  There were 4 Caspian Terns on those flats.  See the totals below.

This coming Wednesday, shorebirds are on the agenda. Instead of going to Nancy Ps, Bend folks can meet and carpool from the parking lot NE of the Barnes and Nobel store next to Hwy 20 on the eastern edge of Bend. It's in the Forum Shopping Center near Costco. We will leave there at 7:15 AM and go to Hatfield Lake. From Hatfield, we'll drive out to the Wetlands in Prineville. Depending on the time and what has been reported, we may not go to the Redmond Sewer ponds on this outing. Redmond folks can carpool from the Nolans parking lot by Starbucks at 7 am and drive directly to Hatfield. The Sisters folks can meet at the Village Green at 6:30 am for carpooling. We will plan to be back in Bend by around 2 pm.

LIGHTS OUT BEND joins Audubon Portland & other cities across the nation for National Audubon/National Geographic’s September Call to Action (Help Birds on their Journey), as part of the 2018 Year of the Bird Campaign.

The Call To Action campaign involves Plimsoll Productions film crew. They will start in NYC filming the CITIES AT NIGHT natural history episode, one of 6 films in series called NIGHT ON EARTH. They are filming dark skies in cities across the nation ending in Portland on September 21. LIGHTS OUT BEND joins the national endeavor by asking Central Oregonians to take the pledge to go lights out on September 21. Participants are asked to: turn off unnecessary lights, use shields, hoods, motion sensors on lights; ask City Councilors to take lighting into consideration for City planning; contact/call Pacific Power to request shielding for streetlight trespass in front of your home. For a safer, healthier world, turn off unnecessary lights.

In 2015, Oregonian Noah Strycker became the first person to see more than
half of the planet’s bird species in a single, yearlong, round-the-world
birding trip. Birding on seven continents and carrying only a pack on his
back, Strycker enlisted the enthusiastic support of local birders to tick
more than 6,000 species. Strycker set a world Big Year record in 2015, and
his 2017 book, *Birding Without Border*s, relates the experience. You are
invited to join co-hosts the Sunriver Nature Center & Observatory and East
Cascades Audubon Society on September 5 at 6:30 at the Sunriver SHARC
Aquatics & Recreation Center – 57250 Overlook Rd, Sunriver, OR 97707 for a
humorous and inspiring evening program, as Noah Strycker recounts his epic
World Big Year. Hope to see you there!

Registration: $10 per person. Members of East Cascades Audubon Society and
Sunriver Nature Center & Observatory receive $2 off the registration price
with appropriate code. ECAS members find your code in the July 27 email
copy of the ECAS Chatter newsletter (or you can email me for the code.)

The surprises keep coming on my morning walks. Yesterday morning it was a

neighborhood. This morning it was a juvenile Norther Goshawk (a female
judging by its size) that flew into a Ponderosa Pine and perched there for
half an hour allowing several neighbors and me to get great looks at it.
I'll post a couple of pictures tonight. The eBird checklist is at

Greetings,

I found adult juncos feeding begging fledglings at Black Butte Ranch this week.


I also found quail feathers around my place. You know nice little piles of young of the year quails. Yesterday morning I found a Sharp-shinned Hawk moving through my trees. I was wondering why the quail flock has been acting differently the last week. Coming in to eat while it is almost dark--morning and night. Only seen a few times in the middle of the day. Normal winter ways when there are Coopers and Sharpies around daily.

Subject: [COBOL] Redmond Sewer Ponds
Near the end of my birding efforts at the Redmond Sewer Ponds today I was treated to an encounter between two Pied-billed Grebes and a Common Garter Snake. My attention was drawn to odd behavior of two birds swimming on an open water area near the inlet. I put my bins on them and saw that they were grebes. I could see something moving in the water between them. I got the scope out and soon figured out there was a good sized snake swimming across an open water area between floating mats of vegetation. The grebes would swim toward the snake and then veer away when they sensed danger. Occasionally one would dive under the water evidently getting an underwater view of the snake. The snake changed course several times as the birds milled around it. The snake eventually made its way across the open water to a floating mat and wriggled into it so all but it’s head was submerged. The grebes seemed to loose interest and went on their way. Then the snake continued to hunt along the vegetation. It was a rather large snake in the 40 plus inch range.

At the ponds:

Canada Goose 27
Blue-winged Teal 2
Cinnamon Teal 4
Northern Shoveler 9
Gadwall 4
Mallard 7
Northern Pintail 8
Pied-billed Grebe 4
Mourning Dove 2
Common Nighthawk 2
American Coot 1
Killdeer 2
Western Sandpiper 7
Turkey Vulture 3
American Kestrel 3
Common Raven 2
Barn Swallow 4

As I left the ponds and was driving by the large concrete slab where the sewage sludge is spread out to dry I noticed a number of birds active over the drying sludge. There were 6 Western Kingbirds and 4 Mountain Bluebirds snagging insects there. I hadn’t seen a kingbird for several weeks. The vegetation in the nearby pivots had just been cut and there were a number of magpies and ravens foraging.

Ebird shows that we have wintering Mountains, but was not sure if those
were northern birds that have migrated here, with our breeders going
further south.

Thanks!

Subject: [COBOL] Bird notes
There hasn't been much to write home about out this way of late, but I have a couple things now.

Last night, the Common Poorwill that is still being seen but not heard near the head of our driveway, called a few times around 10:00 pm. Nice to hear again after radio silence for over a month.

This morning when I stepped outside around 6 a.m. I heard a Scrub-jay calling from the edges of the yard. For whatever reason, they often make an appearance out here in late summer/early fall. Sometimes they linger for a few months; sometimes it's just a brief stay. We shall see!

One of the local Red-tailed Hawks, the rufous morph, showed up for a breakfast of chicken necks. The ravens were a day late and a dollar short.

About an hour later, in the driveway near my van, I heard the tell-tale call of a Cedar Waxing. I located it and one other, appropriately enough, in the branches of our heavily-laden mountain ash. Definitely a treat to hear and see.

Around 6 in the evening, in the same ash tree I spied a female Black-headed Grosbeak. I have not seen or heard one since the spring/early summer.

And about the same time, at our hanging water bowl, a Clark's nutcracker and several Pygmy Nuthatches. A Hairy showed up there a bit later; a juvenile White-headed woodpecker at the nearby suet feeder.

And now the moon is up and birds have gone to roost.

Subject: [COBOL] Sisters Woodpeckers, etc
Hi All -

Taghrid and I spent the last two weekends looking for woodpeckers in the SIsters area, specifically targeting Black-backed and American Three-toed Woodpeckers. After striking out on the targets on our first visit, Steve Shunk (Thanks, Steve!) posted a couple of locations where he had recently had good sightings, so we decided on the next weekend to trek out to Sisters again to give it another try. This time we were fortunate enough to have a long and amazing encounter with a family of Black-backed Woodpeckers (Mom & Juvenile).

Final Woodpecker tally across both visits was pretty amazing, given that this was a mid-August visit:

• White-headed Woodpecker
• Hairy Woodpecker
• Downy Woodpecker
• Black-backed Woodpecker
• Lewis’s Woodpecker
• Northern Flicker
• Williamson’s Sapsucker
• Hybrid Red-naped x Red-breasted Sapsucker

Many other species were seen (too many to list here), but photos are in the Flickr album. We took the long way home, with a detour to Fern Ridge Wlidlife Area to look at shorebirds (see my earlier misguided post about Chestnut-collared Longspurs ;-) ).

Locations visited in Sisters area:

• Rooster Rock Burn
• GW Burn
• Trout Creek Swamp
• Burn near NF 1520-800 junction
• Burn near NF 1520-200 junction (this is where we and others found Black-backed Woodpeckers)

Link to photos: https://flic.kr/s/aHsmqKV7ew

Good birding,

Nagi & Taghrid

Subject: [COBOL] Interesting Least Sandpiper today at Hatfield Lake, Bend, Deschutes County
COBOLanders and OBOLanders,

This morning at Hatfield Lake, I had the opportunity to photograph some of the shorebirds on the first pond (and some other species). While focusing on a Baird's Sandpiper, a bright colored Least flew in to the viewing frame. I couldn't think of what else it could be besides a Least SP, but it seemed brighter than the others so I took several photographs before the flock flushed to the other side of the pond. Please take a look at the photos...I can add more, but I think the three on the ebird list provide good views. The only other bird it could be after perusing my shorebird guides is a Long-toed Stint as the forehead seems dark rather than pale, and that middle toe does look long...

Appreciate the feedback.

Subject: [COBOL] Clay-colored Sparrow
Am not prepared to say that we did not see a Clay-colored Sparrow, but have some concerns. Since I only saw a back view and a small side view of breast and face, could have missed some basic id characteristics. Am going to compare with Chipping Sparrow, which I am leaning towards. Face characteristics from my view could be either. Gray nape which is a main feature of CC but also present on non-breeding Chippers was present though not as gray as I would have liked to see if it was a CC. Breast, from what I could see was more gray and not buff as would have expected on CC but angle made it tough. Bill was light colored from my perspective, but not definitive as to pinkish My principle concern is the gray rump which was very prominent on this bird and is also present in the several of the photos and drawings I found of a Chipper but could not find it on any of the same id characteristics on a Clay-colored. I have only seen a few Clay-colored sparrows and none in Oregon so am open to any suggestions. Given how many Chippers we saw yesterday and the distribution of Clay-coloreds I am reluctant to make the call for Clay-colored. Would love to be proven wrong if anyone has photos or better descriptions. We had great looks so hope to get more info.

Subject: [COBOL] Long, Wednesday ECAS, great birding, Loop around Wickiup Reservoir
First off, thanks to the several of you who were at Wickiup since
Saturday, finding birds and being very helpful about how and where to
find them. We had a great day today in part thanks to being set up by
the wonderful birding community in central Oregon. Had 84 species, 6
warbler species, 9 shorebirds and 8 sparrows plus the more rare birds
below. The smoky viewing made it a bit challenging but it was a very
good day of birding.

First stop, the ponds off the dam at the parking area with sign, which
we call kiosk parking. Spent a couple of hours out there. The GREEN
HERON was the first effort and we got many scope views and some got
distant photos of this streaked Juv. bird, all on left pond and farther
south. Later when we walked the other direction, we had another Green
Heron, an adult, not streaked and very green on the back, going the
opposite direction from the juv which had just flown farther to the
south. It stood on the shore for good scope views. The ponds to left and
to right of the trail out there were used by the herons. Also, one Great
Egret got a fish while we were there.

Second pond on right side of the trail in same area, was a very busy
spot with sparrows and warblers bathing and flitting about, activity
like we have at Whiskey Springs. One of the birds I sent a line to COBOL
about was CLAY-COLORED SPARROW. I still think that is what we had but we
didn't peruse the sparrow book after the sighting. We had Brewers and
Chippers in the area and this was different in face, nape, and back. I
will leave it to others to give a better description but the light
skin/ring around the eye, 2 bright buffy marks on the face, brown cheeks
and gray nape, barely had wingbars, chest unstreaked, the rump was
unstreaked and gray. That gray rump doesn't fit the books we had with
us. Others, give your description.

FRANKLIN'S GULL was on the left viewed from the Wickiup Butte Boat Ramp.
Smudgy head, white arcs around eyes, bill slender, bird sl smaller and
more delicate than Ring-bills around it. Common Loon in that area, 1
Clark's and many Western Grebes.

Driving out on the flats from Reservoir Campground we had 2 COMMON
TERNs, juvs, and most of our shorebird variety. Earlier in willows we
had several fleeting and distant views of Empids most which were
frustratingly, left as sp. Perhaps those with photos can share for
discussion.

Thanks to everyone for the focus on birding and giving all the birds
space. Fun group of birders. I will ebird the 2 spots with the uncommon
birds. Locations I list below are where we stood to see the birds.
Wednesday Birders have found 218 species for the year of Wednesdays, 2
behind last year. Giddyup!

Subject: [COBOL] RBA Wickiup this morning: Green Heron still at Kiosk Ponds!
I finally had a chance to bird Wickiup this morning. After birding from the dam and Wickiup Butte boat ramp, I walked out to the Kiosk Ponds. The GREEN HERON was on the first (most east) pond on the right (north), flew to the pond on the left (south) and then to mature willows further west (see photos). Great find Peter! Also had a single Great Egret on these ponds (photos).

After birding the North Wickiup Boat Ramp, I headed around to the Flats east of the Wickiup Reservior campground. Being able to drive out close to the water really helped manage time. I could have spent the rest of the day looking for shorebirds, but needed to be home at noon. Still, managed to find several species of shorebirds including:

Semipalmated Plover (1 juvenile photos)
Semipalmated Sandpiper (1 juvenile)
Western Sandpiper over 200 (photos); the coolest part of the day was hearing a flock of 100 birds whizzing by me.
Least Sandpiper (12)
Baird's Sandpiper (6 juvenile; distant photo of two)
Greater Yellowlegs (4; photo)
Spotted Sandpiper (2)

I am sure there are lots more species around. Too much ground to cover.

cheers and GREAT BIRDING!
Jim

I noticed an American Redstart in my trees this morning.  It's a county
first for me.  I live in Powell Butte.  Two yard birds in two days and a
county bird too.  Yahoo!
