I think the data entry may be location: the report of maritime observation was made after the fact and location defaulted to nearest hotspot at the time of data entry. We've seen this before, coastal birds connected to Independance, OR and the like.       Snow Geese continue to be reported from Clatsop County. I find the cultural aspects of these daily rare bird reports more interesting than the potential biology. LarsSent from my Verizon, Samsung Galaxy smartphone
