Sorry for the late post, but I spent a great day out on the northern coast on Monday with Eric Kershner. We started at Fort Stevens where the highlight was a Semipalmated Sandpiper mixed in with a small flock of Westerns at the point off Area D. First one I've seen in Spring in Oregon. 6 Red Knots were across the small bay to the south, plus a single Brant and about 50 American White Pelicans. We didn't find too much along the beaches between Fort Stevens and Seaside.
We found a singing Lazuli Bunting at Cannon Beach WTP. It was singing from the top of a fir along the edge of the parking lot.
Finally, at Nehalem Sewage Ponds, we had good looks at a Bank Swallow. Also 3 Blue-winged Teal.
