Hello, this is the Audubon Society of Portland Rare Bird Report. This report
was made Thursday July 25. If you have anything to add call Harry Nehls at
503-233-3976.

On July 18 a ship 80-90km off Curry County observed three ³dark-rumped
petrels², one of which was identified as a HAWAIIAN PETREL. A MURPHY¹S
PETREL was also seen. Early migrants seen on this trip were eight RED
PHALAROPES, 20 SABINE¹S GULLS, 13 ARCTIC TERNS, and five LONG-TAILED
JAEGERS.

On the jetty at the Hammond Boat Basin July 22 were about ten WHIMBRELS,
five MARBLED GODWITS, and 50 dowitchers.

On July 20 a pair of LAZULI BUNTINGS were on Sauvie Island. The next day a
singing GRASSHOPPER SPARROW was at the Sandy River Delta. On July 24 two
TRICOLORED BLACKBIRDS were photographed at the Fernhill Wetlands. Two
families of WILSON¹S PHALAROPES are now being seen at Jackson Bottom in
Hillsboro. At Ankeny NWR July 22 were a GRASSHOPPER SPARROW and five
juvenile WILSON¹S PHALAROPES. At Fern Ridge Reservoir July 22 were a
BLACK-NECKED STILT, two AVOCETS, 35 GREATER and eight LESSER YELLOWLEGS, Two
SEMIPALMATED SANDPIPERS, 150 LONG-BILLED DOWITCHERS and a WILSON¹S
PHALAROPE.

Several pairs of GRASSHOPPER SPARROWS are apparently nesting this summer at
Ladd Marsh WA near Lagrande.


That¹s it for this week
