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
