Hi Tom,

You might consider Northern Harriers as a possibility, on your next
drive-by. Harriers have been very active lately, as the courtship period
is underway.

I've cc:d the MidValley Birding list which has at least a few members
who also commute through that area. Perhaps one of them has seen this

Good birding,

If you're bored, and I make no promises... but my daily work commute cuts 
from Shedd to Corvallis, and Bell Plain Drive circa 99E to McLagan Drive 
has been especially busy in the past few days with what my rookie-birder 
eyes believe to be hawk-like birds not fitting the usual Red-Tail and 
Kestrel profiles, and mostly being sized in between. I have not had time 
to slow or study due to work :-( Nearby Country Rd. also treated me with 
3 days straight of Western Bluebirds.
