Subject: [PortlandAreaBirds] My Tabor Park-ish --- Say's Phoebe Tues.aft.
Hi all,

Em S. found a Say's Phoebe in the community garden on SE Lincoln off SE
60th Ave. I guess this is technically right outside the boundary of the
park.
A few of us saw it it in late afternoon.
Good birding, Tom

This morning Jan and I saw a pair of scaup on Reservoir #5--greater, I think, flat heads and big bills.

Subject: [PortlandAreaBirds] very, presumably, COLD Western Tanager in Portland

Hi all —

Western Tanagers are exceedingly uncommon in winter in Oregon. One of the few Portland-area winter records is currently frequenting a feeder in inner-NE Portland: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S53342929 <https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S53342929>. I corresponded with the observer, and have confidence in this sighting. I surmise the poor bird must be longing for warmer climes.

— Jay W., Portland, where it is currently snowing. Again. In March.

Subject: [PortlandAreaBirds] Horned Larks
All,

I was surprised to find 100+ HORNED LARKs at Steigerwald, NWR, Clark
County, this morning. One flock had 75+ individuals while 20 were at the
intersection of the open NWR trail and the dike trail, and 4 more just west
of that intersection. This is by far the most I have ever seen in the
county!

Keep your eyers and ears skyward.

Subject: [PortlandAreaBirds] Tricolored Blackbird, possible Rusty Blackbird, Rivergate Industrial Area, Portland
This morning, Ross Barnes-Rickett and I saw the previously reportd male
Tricolored Blackbird in the large blackbird flock in the Purina compound on
Simmons Street. The birds were iniitially on the roof of the building to
the left of the one with the Purina logo. They then flew onto the lawn
slightly closer to the street.

I also saw a bird that looked like a female Brewer's Blackbird with a pale
eye, that I suspect was a Rusty Blackbird. Unfortunately, I did not see it
long enough to note any rusty feathers or to judge the bill shape. I am
hoping that someone else will be able to check those features out.

Peter Barnes,
Gresham
