"Smith and Bybee Lakes, Portland, Oregon ... September 1, 3, 8, and 12, 2014"
The Trips:    Monday, September 1:   Went out in the heat of the day to Smith Lake to try and find the Snowy Egret reported there this morning ... and, after 3 years of many trips to these lakes to find this Egret - SUCCESS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ... bird was far out and there was LOTS of heat scintillation but the Egret was readily identifiable ... Wednesday, September 3:   cloudy but breaking up, went back to Smith and Bybee to see if the Snowy Egret was still there ... there were over 300 Great Egrets between the two lakes, but no Snowy ... however "consolation prize" were two Red Phallaropes on Bybee Lake ... also had over 100 American White Pelicans overhead ... Monday, September 8:   cloudy but breaking up, we went back to Smith and Bybee to look for Red Phalaropes and Snowy Egrets ... found neither one ... however had two new "locale" birds, the Eurasian Collared-Dove and a juvenile Red-breasted Sapsucker ... Friday, September 12:   hot sunny day, went out early morning to look for the Sabine's Gull which had been spotted there the day before ... SUCCESS !!! ... way out on Smith Lake but nicely visible with scope ...
