Speaking of White-winged Doves, Lars posed the question, “How many coastal counties have one or more verified detections?” The answer, if my numbers and eBird are right, is all but Douglas County. Almost half (17) of Oregon’s 36 counties have verified White-winged Dove sightings. If you want to make Oregon county bird history, find a White-winged Dove in Baker, Benton, Clackamas, Crook, Douglas, Gilliam, Grant, Jefferson, Josephine, Klamath, Linn, Marion, Morrow, Polk, Sherman, Wallowa, Washington, Wheeler or Yamhill counties.

Well, a highly pleasant find. I expect every county to detect the species by 2030. The species has been expanding for a century. How many coastal counties now have one or more verified detections? What l find amazing is how underbirded HR county is when it's an easy hour from downtown Portland

What a great day you're having in Hood River County! The dove is an amazing find and county first!

The Eastern Kingbird is the first I am aware of for the county, though Chuck has it listed in the full checklist for Hood River here

Summers and Miller (1993) do not list the species in Hood River.

Have fun!

Holy cow. I think this is a first county record. We just found a WHITE-WINGED DOVE in Odell while looking for Mourning Dove for Hood River County. All we can find a Collared-Doves.

It is at the junction of Summit Drive and Kusisto Road.
