I started at the Ni-les’tun unit of Bandon Marsh. Beautiful sunrise. Best
birds were 3 SHORT-EARED OWLS. Raptors included 3 harriers, 2 WT Kites,
and one each of RS and RT Hawk. Calling birds included 1-2 Soras, half a
dozen+ Virginia Rails, and a Swamp Sparrow.

Couldn’t refind Burrowing Owl at Bandon Dunes Golf Course but did hear a
Palm Warbler.

Bandon Marsh had 1100 Dunlin, 20 LB Dows, 17 BB Plovers and one juvie

Along south jetty the rockpiper flock only had Black T’s (60) and Surfbirds
(8). Also present was a flock of 150 Least Sands and a few Dunlin. Two

Looked for Burrowing Owl a second time without luck on way home and had
great looks at the Palm Warbler I had only heard earlier in the day.

Back in Coos Bay where rain looks not far off.

Happy Birding!
