No luck lately refinding the WW DOVE Adrian Hinkle found on the 20th in
North Bend- last reported on the 27th.
The HARRIS’S SPARROW was still at Millicoma Marsh on east side of Coos Bay
on the 1st. I put more seed down this morning. The C YELLOWTHROAT was
calling away, one can usually hear it while watching seed from kiosk.
Yesterday BURROWING OWL continued at Bandon Dunes GC and the Arago N
MOCKINGBIRD also continued. There was a SHRIKE, assuming NORTHERN, at about
the 13.5 mile marker on N Bank Road east of Bandon yesterday. As soon as I
stopped truck to check it out it disappeared.
On the 1st the 4 PALM WARBLERS continued at the east end of Virginia St. in
This morning there was one SNOW GOOSE with 150+ Canada Geese in the
Catching Slough pastures of Coos Bay (east of Millicoma Marsh). Also 30 GWF
Geese and at least two Cacklers.
I then drove down near Coquille where another yellowthroat contines along
railroad tracks below Hwy 42 (Winter Lake overlook, 8 mi marker).
Yesterday there was another yellowthroat behind the Langlois store-
probably same bird seen a couple blocks away a few days ago. Met Jim Rogers
and struck out on magpie yet again ; (
Coquille Valley CBC coming upon Saturday - should be a blast!
