Today Sean Burns and I had a juvenile BAIRD'S SANDPIPER at Sutton Cr, Lane co. A little south at Heceta beach was a juvenile SEMIPALMATED SANDPIPER which has been around for 3 days. It is using the big puddle just north of Driftwood Shores with a few hundred Westerns and some Semipalmated Plovers.
Down at Siltcoos there was another juv. SEMIPALMATED SP on the little tidal pond north of Waxmyrtle trail. There was also a RED-NECKED PHALAROPE that has been around for several days. The PURPLE MARTINS are nesting in the newly installed boxes around the pond. One BLACK PHOEBE was also at the pond. They seem to have bred in the area.
The oversummering MEW GULL is still roosting at the Port of Siuslaw with some Cals and Westerns. The two Western Gull chicks on the dock are about ready to take flight.
Good birding, Daniel Farrar Dunes City, Oregon <jdanielfarrar...>
