With White-winged Crossbills also in Lincoln County, and some reports of big flocks of Siskins, this is turning into a big summer for winter finches.

Great bird, Darrel. So few records west of the Cascades. Lane has three, I think, none as far west as yours.

About 2:45 this afternoon (Sunday) a Pine Grosbeak (appears to be hatch year) showed up at my feeder. Since then it has periodically come to the feeder between times of perching in nearby trees. It is at the feeder now,as of 3:20. If anyone wants to look for it, here at Thornton Creek, please call (541-875-2313) or e-mail me first. Viewing conditions are rather restricted.
