It has been at least 20 years since I have heard of any possibles. I’m not aware of any documentation. I assume that OBRC would want a report.
Sometimes we get lucky but the data is too soft. About twenty years ago a whimbrel with a white rump went past me in wind at the Florence north jetty. That’s 100 percent of my data. Another time a femalic eider went by Boiler Bay with scoters at long range. I don’t think I reported it. It’s nice to have pics of the pipit.

> Thanks Alan. Do you happen to have any more information about those sightings off the top of your head? I ask out of personal curiosity. For a subspecies that may one day be split from American Pipit (Buff-bellied Pipit), I find it odd that it isn’t on the OBRC Review List pertaining to subspecies.

See link below for photos and details. As far as I can tell, this appears to be an Oregon first. Someone more knowledgeable correct me if I’m wrong.
