Was gone recently but heard that Sheila Chambers, down south of Brookings in Harbor, had a female BULLOCK'S ORIOLE at her feeder on or about the 18th of Feb. Not sure if it has lingered. She has a nice photo.
I was at Johnson Mill Pond in Coquille a couple days ago and the VIOLET-GREEN SWALLOWS were in. There were probably 30 Trees and maybe 6-8 Violet-greens.
At our house in Coos Bay we have several male Selasphorus in. In addition to the Selasphorus male with a over 50% green-back we have another Selasphorus with considerably less than a 50% green-back. Confusion in the hybrid zone! We do have a female in and one totally red-backed Selasphorus that some would call a Rufous. Mayhem at the feeders now with 10+ hummers at a couple feeders around dusk every night jockeying for a feeding port.
Eurasian Wigeon male still around and vocalizing in Mingus Park.
