Subject: [obol] Heron rookery in Salem
Today I spotted a heron rookery new to me.
It is just north of the State Emergency Center (corner of State and
Hawthorne in Salem). Best viewing and parking would be on Pipebend
Place, a street just north of State/Hawthorne junction.
There are three nests visible. I only saw two herons.
I'm used to seeing rookeries along the Willamette, but not at this
location. Mill Creek is nearby, as well as some wet fields. (This
was/is Jeff Harding's lunchtime birding area, and he may know if herons
are new or not.)
Camp Adair area north of Corvallis
