Subject: [obol] Fwd: King Bird ? [Tropical Kingbird on Yaquina Bay CBC and in March]

Without marked individual kingbirds, it is unknown how long a Tropical
Kingbird remains here or, if it survives, where it goes afterwards.

However, some may linger or, alternatively, a series of different
individuals may be present in the same area with favorable habitat, so
that one or more Tropical Kingbirds may be found in a Lincoln Co. area
for several months.

For example, as reported from bird notes of the Yaquina Birders &
Naturalists' newsletter, one was found between the Hatfield Marine
Science Center and Oregon Coast Aquarium on Oct. 6, 2012. There were
other records, with the latest records for that area that season were
one for the Jan. 1, 2013 Yaquina Bay CBC, a probable one there in
February 2013, and one identified there by Wayne Hoffman on 3/4/2013.

The Tropical Kingbird at Newport seemed to be hiding from the wind on
the rocks by the shore. It is my understanding that the Birds that
wander up the coast are overachievers in the process of post breeding
dispersal. Is there any information about whether such birds succeed
in returning to there normal range? Would leaving a gift of meal worms
help them winter in place?

Happy Birding
