Columbia Estuary Report - 4/6/2017
I've had a yard full of ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLERS at my house for the last two days, now. At least three COMMON YELLOWTHROATS were along Trestle Bay this morning.
A TOWNSEND'S SOLITAIRE was photographed Wednesday at the South Jetty of the Columbia River. Multiple SAY'S PHOEBES have been reported over the last week or so, including most recently one seen on Thursday and Friday at Cannon Beach.
TUFTED PUFFINS returned to Haystack Rock on 3/31 and have been reported regularly since then. Most known OSPREY nest locations in the area have an Osprey on them.
In butterfly news, an early WESTERN PINE ELFIN was photographed at Sunset Beach SRA Monday. Also reported: ECHO AZURE, white sp. (probably MARGINED WHITE) and MOURNING CLOAK.
