Viewing Report for May 18, 2012 / ODFW

Daddy Long-legs: Mud flats and shallow waters are good places to look for American avocets in Northeast Oregon. Avocets are a mosquito’s worst nightmare. With their curved beak they swish it from side-to-side just below the water surface to glean the insect’s larvae in huge amounts. At this time, a very visual pair can be seen in a flooded field, along the highway, between Island City and Imbler. JIM WARD photo

Hunting Report for May 11, 2012 / ODFW

Meadow Muncher: Ground squirrels are out in full force on ag lands throughout Northeast Oregon. In high numbers, these rodents can cause considerable damage to crops, so hunters can often get access from ranchers and farmers suffering losses. Studies have shown that squirrel carcasses left by hunters often contain lead fragments which can be devastating to raptors like golden eagles when they find and feed on these. Fortunately, most rifle cartridges now come in lead-free choices. Young hunters should be observant of their background when shooting rifles in open country. A small .22-caliber bullet can travel up to one mile and larger calibers even farther. JIM WARD photo

Carnivorous Vegetarian: Black bears are well known for their fondness for fresh meat or carrion, but veggies, including grasses and forbs, actually make up the largest part of their diet. Good places for hunters to look for bears are open, grassy slopes in the early morning or late evening hours. Later in the season, bears will be looking for newborn elk or deer. Calls simulating young animals in distress can be very effective in luring bears at this time. Oregon’s bear season began on April 15 and ends on May 31. JIM WARD photo
