Pretty cool find- thanks for sharing Adrian!

There are two OR records- one from Curry in Jan and one from Coos Bay in
Apr. I was on the beach in thick fog this AM at N Spit Coos and only saw
two juvie Western Sandpipers. Yesterday it was clear but no wind but there
was a huge raft of Surf Scoters off N Spit Coos with a few merlits and
rhino auklets. Seeing a Black Skimmer in OR would be awfully cool!

Merry migration,
Tim R
Coos Bay
