Subject: [obol] Fwd: Tillamook LESSER NIGHTHAWK
Annika Andersson just found and photographed a putative LESSER NIGHTHAWK (being discussed on the Clatsop-Tillamook WhatsApp) at Goose Point on the east edge of Tillamook Bay. She is still working in the field, but gave me permission to post on her behalf.

Access is via Clam St, just south of Bay City (45.511341, -123.886745)

Bird was initially seen as it flushed from the ground and then seen along driftwood logs east (south) of Goose Point on the beach around here (45.508771, -123.887893).

A strategy for viewing the Lesser Nighthawk in Arcata, CA last week was to come out at sunset and wait for the bird to starting hunting and flying around. That bird was present for at least 5 days...the first verified Humboldt County record btw.

Cheers,
Russ Namitz
