Columbia Estuary Report - 10/4/2017
A SANDHILL CRANE was photographed on the beach at Ecola Creek in Cannon Beach on Sunday. A SNOW GOOSE was reported at the South Jetty Tuesday and one was photographed with CANADA GEESE at Wireless Rd on Wednesday.
A juvenile NORTHERN SHRIKE and a MERLIN were at the South Jetty on Wednesday. MERLINS have been seen at several other locations over the past week.
Up to 30 LAPLAND LONGSPURS are being seen regularly at the South Jetty and lots of AMERICAN PIPITS are moving through, as well. A large flock of WESTERN MEADOWLARKS was at Wireless Rd.
