Chuck Philo found an immature Northern Shrike in the brush just north of the large green LNG tank late this morning. It flew when a brush cutter was clearing brush north of the LNG tank. It looks like they may clear all the brush there and leave a stubble field. This may be the same shrike found by Jeff Harding near the Hatfield Marine Science Center yesterday (see eBird checklist with photos below).
Chuck also saw 3 Lapland Longspurs about 100 yards of the LNG tank.
At the Yaquina Bay North Jetty, Chuck saw 7 Lapland Longspurs this morning near the chain link gate across the North Jetty.
