>> About 11AM today along Delashmutt Lane we found an adult FERRUGINOUS HAWK [a first for Yamhill County] along with a Rough-legged Hawk and over 20 Red-tailed Hawks, plus 6 Great Blue Herons and a couple Ravens.  While we were there several Am. Pipits flew overhead.

Go about a mile until you pass some red barns and see a flock of sheep in a pasture on the right, surrounded by electric fence. Park along the road and look west/northwest towards the Erratic Rock, north of Hwy 18. The hawks were well out in the field beyond the sheep and in the next field north of the sheep toward Hwy 18.  A scope is helpful, since the birds are far from the road.
