This last weekend my goal was to clear 100 for Baker Co. Well, I did. Comfortably.
When I pulled into Spring Creek (Union Co) Friday night, I was surprised to hear a Flammulated Owl near the intersection of FR21 and FR2155. It was the only owl I would encounter all weekend.
The highlights from Baker Co include (see sites on http://birdingoregon.info/Home/BakerCounty/tabid/180/Default.aspx):
This morning I drove Willow Ck Road from Ironside (coming from Unity) and birded Malheur Reservoir before sneaking back into Baker Co south of Bridgeport. I tallied 64 species on this short excursion. The west end of the reservoir was plastered with waterfowl. 4 Caspian Terns, many Cinnamon Teal, several pairs of Western Grebe and 8 Greater White-fronted Geese were unexpected.
En route back home, a brief check for Veery and Gray Catbird at Red Bridge SP in Union Co was unsuccessful.
