>   There were about 10 Bufflehead on the nw lagoon of Philomath sewage facility last night (10/17). Also about two dozen Eared Grebes spread between the two northern lagoons. They were still there this morning. Two adult Peregrines were perched along the entrance road from 8 to 9 am. They left in tandem, headed sw, just skimming the ash trees sw of the complex. 
>     At the pasture west of Corvallis Airport on Airport Rd there were at least 7 Rough-legged Hawks. Light birds, dark birds, males females. Also plenty of other raptors, but ROHA a clear majority. The prairie overlook at Finley had only a lone Northern Hariier. I"m guessing the kites came later. I was there from 10-11 if not longer. The poorest count for raptors I've made at that spot in a long time.  Lars
