A few years ago the Malones found a group of Bell's Vireos at Columbia Bottom. 
 This spot continues to be productive for them as there were many there today. 
 For those unfamiliar with the spot take the paved entrance road thru the open 
fields.  Eventually you will have some trees on your left and then a lot of 
small trees/bushes on your right as well.  Drive another 75-100 yards past the 
point where trees are on both sides of the road, park and listen.

Orchard Orioles were very common at CBCA today, particularly walking down the 
paved bike path from the boat launch ramp.  Shorebirds were very scarce as it 
seems that there is too much water in the ponds along the gravel road.  Walking 
back to the flooded area to the right of the gravel road (right as one comes 
from the entrance) there were some shorebirds flying around back there, but they 
were beyond scope range.
