In the interest of sharing the main birds that have been prompting repeated reports of "rarities" on eBird ...
Local birders continue to report as much as six Tri-colored Blackbirds at the Philomath sewage treatment ponds (access permission required) and and smaller numbers in the gravel quarries off of Eichler Rd. east of Albany (on private property but owner seems to tolerate birders).
The apparent immature male Barrow's Goldeneye hanging out with a female Bufflehead at the mitigation wetland/scrape along Bruce Rd. at Finley NWR also continues to be reported.
