To add to the discussion of the Cassin's Vireo reports from Eugene, here's a March 30th sighting from Corvallis that I neglected to forward.

I was just north of Goss Stadium at OSU today and got a good look at a CASSIN'S VIREO. I watched it carefully for about 5 minutes, just to be sure. It's early in the migratory season for this species. Perhaps it's just an oddball. I remember Lisa and I found one nearby, on Philomath Blvd., in January 2011.
Anyway, I found the bird because I was watching a pair of Black-capped Chickadees explore tree cavities and this vireo stumbled across my field of view.
