Hi,I saw your great list, and that you encountered a Hutton's Vireo. I believe it would be the third, maybe fourth record for that species in Klamath County/Basin. If you could include observations regarding bill shape and size, spectacle information, and any observations that would separate it from Ruby-crowned Kinglet, that would support the record in ebird much more. I'm presuming that you observed White-throated Swfts down at Tule Lake NWR, right?Thanks for sharing your list!Good Birding!Kevin SpencerKlamath Falls, ORSent from my Verizon LG Smartphone------ Original message------From: <woodenapple...>: Mon, Apr 29, 2019 11:35 PMTo: <obol...>;Cc: Subject:[obol] Klamath Basin trip listGreetings, Obolonians!
We just returned from a quick, two-day trip to the Klamath Basin, our third in the last seven weeks. Here's what we saw:
Grebe, Pied-billed Eared Western Clark's Am. White Pelican D.C. Cormorant Great Blue Heron Great Egret Black-crowned Night-Heron White-faced Ibis Turkey Vulture Goose, Greater White-fronted Snow Canada Gadwall Am. Wigeon Mallard Teal, Cinnamon Green-winged N.

Flicker Gray Flycatcher W. Kingbird Vireo, Cassin's Hutton's (I'd like comments from local observers on occurrence of this species. We had great, close-range looks at one bird at the Wood River Wetlands dike and are confident of the i.d. It just seems so out of place.)
