Checkermallow Great Horned Owl Nest:
April 4, 2017
Those of you who were on the BOGS walk the day this nest was first seen,
know how far away the nest is from any public access location. Using a spotting scope
and the 50X of my Canon SX50, I was able to see that there are THREE babies in the nest,
about 4 or 5 weeks old.

I am working on a full trip report
for the new Springfield Millrace Trail.
I went back Thurs Mar 16 when the lighting was much better
and took photos providing some wide angle views of Jasper Slough, the Millrace itself
as well as pics of Northwestern Turtles, a Black Phoebe,
Hooded Mergansers, and Ring-necked Ducks.
I will upload this hopefully by Thurs, March 23.

THE LATEST BIRDS REPORTED to eBIRD in our area:
I am excited to report that the BIRDTRAX widgets
have been restored to full functionality!!
There is now a STATEWIDE RARITIES widget,
as well as a REGIONAL RARITIES (within 40 miles).
As before, there are also widgets covering from Albany in the north
to Oakridge to the south.
Most eBird data provides only confirmed sightings,
but a rare bird might not stick around as long as it takes for a report to be confirmed
by local eBird reviewers. This widget gives the quickest public access to reports of such sightings.
