I spent today birding around Florence with Tye Jeske and Josh Galpern. Highlights were a female Black Scoter between the jetties, an Osprey over the channel, Swamp Sparrow at Waite Ranch and a female selasphorus hummingbird in Westlake by the Siltcoos River bridge. All of these were discovered by Josh and Tye.
Lots of Red-necked Grebes in the channel, and loons and grebes were generally common and widespread. Heavy mist over the ocean prevented a useful seawatch
Josh and Tye can add what I forgot.
Attending Christmas Bird Counts with good weather forecasts.
