Hi All- 

We finally had our FOY male RUFOUS HUMMER here at our home, 6 mi SW of Philomath! Very exciting to hear the familiar buzz and see its bright colors. 

Also, before it was wholly light this morning, Jim saw waves on our pond and then spotted a GREAT HORNED OWL walking out of the shallow end. It shook off, walked a few more steps and shook off again. Presumably the same owl we've seen walking around in our meadows, hunting.
