Highlight was seeing Dave Mandell and Jay Withgott at the Sitka Sedge Trail, with Dave's spotting scope already focused on a female White-winged Crossbill. I managed a few distant photos before it flew. She reappeared 20 minutes later for a couple minutes. Both times perched on top of spruces near the entrance to the dike trail. I talked to one local birder who had seen a male earlier in the morning.
I looked at a lot of white-cheeked geese in various areas (Otis, Nestucca NWR, SE of Tillamook, Nehalem Pastures) and saw at least 3 ssp of Cackling and 2 of Canada, but no other goose species.
Good numbers of Red-tails, Kestrels, and Bald Eagles, 1 Redshoulder, 2 harriers...
Oddest bird of he day was a Brown Pelican flying over the Nestucca River in Pacific City. First one I have seen since early November.
