We have a family of PUMA that nested late in a previously unused PUMA box that sits in a yard along the lake (Lincoln City). 4 PUMA youngsters just fledged two days ago. One of the adults was banded before it fledged on July 24, 2019 at Cathlamet WA along the Columbia River. dawn v Lincoln City/Nelscott Sent: Monday, August 24, 2020 at 8:28 PM From: "Tim Rodenkirk" <timrodenkirk...> To: <larspernorgren...> Cc: <KayCarter001...>, "OBOL Oregon Birders Online" <obol...>, "<adt0611...>" <adt0611...> Subject: [obol] Re: ID help, PUMA?I think the reason we all are hearing/seeing more PUMA has a lot to do with Eric Horvath’s hard work putting up boxes all over western OR 20 yrs ago. This effort has been continued by folks like Joe Metzler in Coos County. Kudos to all the folks involved in this. Birds are now using snag habitat all over the south coast- I can’t hardly go anywhere without hearing PUMA calling during the breeding season now while working in the Coast Range. 20 yrs ago there were none. Awesome job to all involved! Tim RCoos Bay On Mon, Aug 24, 2020 at 6:43 PM larspernorgren <larspernorgren...> wrote:

Increased observer effort, however passive the motivation.

Sounds good for Purple Martin to me. I’ve been seeing and hearing a group of 4 birds off and on for the last several weeks from the Canby side of the river (across from Hebb County Park). I’m pretty sure all the ones I’ve seen are immatures.

Could this be a Purple Martin? If not, what else could it be? Recorded 8/22 in a wooded area near the Willamette in West Linn (Clackamas).
