Myself and three other Tillamook area birders birded Tillamook from Garibaldi to Manzanita. This was a sort of preview trip for the birding community I am trying to build in Tillamook County. We are having a birder's night on Wednesday, December 6 at the Tillamook Library Branch from 6-7:30 p.m.
Our highlight bird was a SWAMP SPARROW at Alder Creek Farms in Nehalem in the lower pasture, along with the continuing Tan-Striped White-Throated Sparrow.
We also saw seven species of raptors: Bald Eagle Peregrine Falcon Kestrel Merlin (Chasing the Peregrine) Northern Harrier Red-Tailed Hawk Cooper's Hawk
There was an okay number of ducks scattered about; no Greater Scaup though I have seen them my last few trips at the Nehalem Sewage Ponds.
