The Least Flycatcher reported by Stefan Schlick at the end of Fred Ashley Rd was still present this morning, chebecking away. Would've recorded it if not for the terrible cacophony of cows directly behind me.
50 yards down the road also had a pair of Eastern kingbirds on the high tension tower. In my personal experience the population seems to be expanding. In years past ive only seen them at trout Creek on the upper lower Deschutes, but this year I've already seen three individuals scattered up and down the lower lower Deschutes and today at Tygh Valley. Not enough data to be significant but I wonder if others are noticing the same.
