It’s duck and geese hunting season. The Goose Check spot identifies the particular species of bird has been killed. I found this sign to be unique to our area.

I like that Oregon Agriculture identifies what is growing in the field behind it. Many crops thrive in the Willamette Valley from nursery plants, various fruits and berries, vegetables, hay, hops, grass seed, peonies, tulips, iris flowers, and many more crops! There are also several wineries that grow several varieties of grapes and have produced award winning wines!
