Hazing elk on Zumwalt Prairie

Elk on the Zumwalt Prairie compete with cattle and other wildlife for habitat and are being hazed toward the national forest this winter. KATY NESBITT / The Observer

In the past 20 years many of the elk in Wallowa County’s Chesnimnus wildlife unit have shifted their habitat range from the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest to private land on the Zumwalt Prairie.

Though the reasons for this vary, moving the elk back onto the forest is supported by ranchers, hunters, nonprofits and wildlife agencies alike.

Seth Hargett, 10, fills his bird feeder with a mix of sunflower seeds and millet. Once you start feeding birds, itís a good idea to keep them stocked through harsh weather. Getting youth involved with feeding wild birds can be a good way to introduce them to the natural world.Ē JIM WARD photo

No snow, with one minor exception, fell during the recent annual Union County Christmas Bird Count.

But six records did — including a most coveted mark.

Counters located 88 species of birds, eclipsing the old record of 87. The previous mark was set a year ago. That was considered a landmark because it was the first time at least 80 species had been counted.

How big is big?

Elk are amazing animals. Indeed, they are one of the fastest growing critters on our continent. JIM WARD photo

Other than a couple of cow hunts, most elk seasons in Northeast Oregon have closed.

Many hunters have shifted their focus to such things as football or New Year’s resolutions.
