Waite Ranch team (Tye Jeske, Josh Galpern, Daniel Farrar) at Florence CBC had 21 Lincoln’s and 8 Swamps. Plus almost a hundred Marsh Wren and over a hundred Song Sparrows. It is basically all wet grass and marsh edge habitat.
When I have done the cape I do better on Lincoln's below Hughes House than I do at the big marsh.
I’m not aware of any movements of Red Phal. I think I saw ONE in early November.

At and adjacent to parking area there were 6 SWAMP SPARROWS and 4 PALM WARBLERS. At Hughes House an OSPREY was hanging out along river. A half dozen bluebirds were in fields on drive in.

Lincoln Sparrows almost missed on Coos Bay CBC (1) and none seen today at Blanco marsh which has excellent habitat for them? I think Florence CBC had good number though?
