I have seen Horned Lark several times in Coos and also in Curry but I have always seen a larger not very yellow subspecies (I think maybe arcticola). If you are sure on the subspecies it would be a great Curry find!

I was working in tan oak country NE of Brookings the latter half of the week. Hutton’s Vireos were singing. The woods were full of A. Robins and Waxwing flocks eating madrone berries too. Otherwise pretty quiet with morning temps at sunrise in lower 50’s at 2,000’, east winds a blowing. Great fall color from maples in all the drainages I was in.

A Say’s Phoebe wintering up the Winchuck where reported earlier this fall also (at farm hiuse a bit past the one mile marker).

A few more sunny days and then winter shall finally arrive- enjoy!

I never see many G-wings in south Curry.

Have they left some fennel patches?

Did you, er, get a good look at the lark?
