It sounds like maybe a Least but he didn’t see the eyering well enough to tell me if it was complete or not. Looking forward to seeing the video... Also he had a CC SPARROW show up today at the same location- the family ranch near Cape Blanco.
> In Coos I put more seed out at 2nd kiosk at Millicoma Marsh on east side of Coos Bay. The sparrow flock was mainly GC, Song and Fox but there was a single (! only one) WC and two WT. Also a Lincoln’s and a Swamp- the latter was easy to see out in open along trail. One Steller’s Jay that would do RS Hawk imitations now and then while feeding- funny! On the side trail to north between first and second kiosk (the one that swings back to north side of track) there was a calling C YELLOWTHROAT I was able to see also. Hope it sticks for the CBC on the 16th. I then went over to one of the more birdy neighborhoods in Eastside and quickly found an OC Warbler.
