That sounds like a good high count for Lincoln! My highest count for Coos
was at the north cove at Cape Arago on 26 Feb this year when I saw 66! I
also wanted to mention that Cape Arago is a good location for this species
year-round as it appears a few nonbreeders are there all spring and
summer(May, June, July) at least the last decade or so. Are there
oversummering nonbreeders in Lincoln you know of Roy (or Range)?

Merry early migration!
