Subject: [obol] Tillamook Tropical Kingbird and Rock Sandpiper
Yesterday afternoon, there was a TROPICAL KINGBIRD on Bayocean Spit, about
4/5ths of the way to the gate and on the right side of the road. This
afternoon around 1pm, there was a very cooperative ROCK SANDPIPER at the
base of Barview Jetty. Nehalem Sewage Ponds had a decent collection of
gulls, including two "THAYER'S" and a single BONAPARTE'S. There were also
about 50 DUNLIN, 20 LONG-BILLED DOWITCHERS and one WESTERN SANDPIPER. The
fields just past the ponds were full of blackbirds, but I couldn't turn up
anything unusual. The plowed field on the right about 100 yards past the
ponds had at least 75 WILSON'S SNIPE, about 30 KILLDEER, a few LEAST
SANDPIPERS, a pair of GREATER YELLOWLEGS and a few AMERICAN PIPITS.
