38 Species at Malheur NWR, OR

Eurasian Wigeon
We worked pretty hard, scanning big flocks of ducks, to find this guy.
Osprey
Two birds flying together, an usual sighting for Malheur
Sora (h)
Great Horned Owl
Just outside the NWR visitor center. Also seen at the Double OO field station.
Yellow-rumped Warbler
Wow. The yellow wing patches ("headlights") and throat patches were astoundingly bright. We don't see the males that bright down in Santa Clara.

Trip Notes

An epic, twelve hour day of looking and listening. Good company, good snacks, almost no wind, great sunlight.
