Sounds like we need should be measuring the length of a vagrant's stay rather than the date of its departure.

On that basis, the Eider would (I think) already be a continental record.

Jack - the Emperor Goose can’t set a late record. I can think of two that have stayed all the next summer - one near the mouth the Sandy River (Multnomah County) and one in the Nehalem Meadows, (Tillamook County).

If the Canadas are resident, I would almost expect this one to summer near Bend. The two summering Emperors that I recall off hand were just on their own all summer.

Subject: [COBOL] Emperor Goose - Bend

This morning I had the good fortune to stumble upon David and Barbara Phillips, local birders, who had the Emperor Goose in already in their sights. An hour later I introduced myself to Jerry Pascoe whose home is adjacent to the field with the goose in it. Jerry, in turn, introduced me to the property owner who granted me permission to enter the property to take photographs of the goose.

Eight photos here: http://www.jack-n-jill.net/p549754048

The bird was in the field bordered on the north and west by Nelson and Dickey roads, respectively. 44.086223, -121.221100

Wondering if the Steller's Eider or Emperor Goose is going to take the record for late records in the state.
