Below are the Lincoln Co. Mountain Bluebird reports that I am aware of--I am not closely compiling records any more. 5 of the 7 reports below were in March-April.
1) A female Mountain Bluebird at South Beach was well-studied by Matt Hunter and Steve Heinl on April 28, 1985. 2) A Mountain Bluebird was also reported on 12/19/1992. [I don't have the time to look up more information.] 3) A possible, female MOUNTAIN BLUEBIRD was reported at Yaquina Head on 4/14 & 15/1999. 4) Darrel Faxon saw a MOUNTAIN BLUEBIRD at Thornton Creek on 8/27/2003. 5) A brilliant blue adult male MOUNTAIN BLUEBIRD was found at Yaquina Head during March 5-11, 2007 (BLM). 6) On 4/12/2010, Trent Seager saw a male MOUNTAIN BLUEBIRD perched on a log at the beach at South Beach State Park. This is the 6th record for Lincoln Co.. 7) Mountain Bluebird (Sialia currucoides) (1) - Reported Apr 27, 2019 15:00 by Rick Mark - Siletz Bay, Oregon, Lincoln, Oregon - Map: http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&t=p&z=13&q=44.919611,-124.025657&ll=44.919611,-124.025657 - Checklist: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S55533508 - Media: 7 Photos - Comments: "Male mountain bluebird seen on a Pacific Ocean beach. He perched in shrubbery and on driftwood on the bay side of Salishan Spit, near Lincoln City, OR. The bird spent a little time walking on the sand as well."
Besides Rick Mark's report to eBird, I haven't found any other records in eBird.
