On April 28 a THICK-BILLED MURRE was seen passing northward off Cape Arago
near Coos Bay. A MANX-TYPE SHEARWATER was off Boiler Bay April 26.
West winds during the week brought spectacular movements along the beaches,
especially BONAPARTE¹S GULLS, RED-NECKED PHALAROPES, and PACIFIC and
RED-THROATED LOONS. Heavy movements inland brought conspicuous numbers of
flycatchers. The WHITE-FRONTED GOOSE movement continues.
On April 26 two FRANKLIN¹S GULLS were among the heavy CALIFORNIA GULL
movement off Boiler Bay. That day a LAPLAND LONGSPUR was at the south jetty
of Yaquina Bay.
