One more to add to the list for BOGR updates?
We are cautiously optimistic that we will be able to document a second Lincoln County (and Western Oregon) breeding at Beaver Creek this summer.
Without doing the research, I am getting the sense from OBOL,and particularly from the Oregon 2020 blitz posts that Catbirds are more widespread on the east side than recognized in the Breeding Bird Atlas.
Also I seem to be hearing more about breeding on the east slope of the Cascades (e.g., Camp Sherman and the Northern Waterthrush sites).

There is a mimid burbling away in the dense brush of my back yard in sw Eugene this morning. Pretty sure it’s a CATBIRD. Neighbor’s saw breaks into the song and it is staying in dense brush.
Owing to a minor medical issue I can’t pursue it or have in-house guests right now, but it might be heard or seen from outside my back fence. Two seats available on the deck.
