Hello, this is the Audubon Society of Portland Rare Bird Report. This report
was made Thursday March 2. If you have anything to add call Harry Nehls at
503-233-3976.

The Coos Bay KING EIDER, Sutton Lake BRAMBLING, the South Beach COSTA'S
HUMMINGBIRD, and the Salishan BROWN THRASHER continue to be seen. A
WHITE-WINGE DOVE is now being seen in Redmond. A possible TUFTED DUCK was
photographed February 27 at Ankeny NWR. A large gray GYRFALCON is now being
seen in the meadowlands west of Halsey. A large brownish PRAIRIE FALCON is
in the same area so use caution in your ID.

Spawning Herring are now in Coos Bay and Yaquina Bay attracting spectacular
numbers of birds and mammals.

The BULLOCK'S ORIOLE wintering at a North Bend feeder continues to be seen.
On February 28 about 1000 SNOW GEESE were on the Shilipoo WMA near Vancouver
Lake. A NORTHERN SHRIKE was also in the area.

Right on schedule a RUFOUS HUMMINGBIRD was at a Lake Oswego feeder February
27. An AMERICAN TREE SPARROW was near Albany February 24. On February 25 up
to 30 GREATER SCAUP were on Dexter Reservoir southeast of Eugene.

Thatıs it for this week.
