Yes, today and yesterday I saw my first south bound WESTERN SANDPIPERS. There was a flock of 20-25 at Siltcoos River mouth, Lane Co yesterday and today there were flocks of 10 and 20 on the beach south of Carter Lake trail, Douglas Co.
Up at Baker Beach, Lane Co there were 3 WHIMBREL this morning.
Also saw an adult HEERMAN'S GULL near Carter Lake, Douglas Co. this morning.
