Yesterday (Friday the 12th) mid-morning I saw a Great Blue
Heron doing the raptor thing, circling and circling in a
thermal, while flapping for extra assist, till it had
climbed quite high, over south Corvallis, then a long glide
to the northwest-- slightly unusual behavior for such a
bird, though I've seen the same on a few other rare
occasions.  Steve Seibel
