I haven't been on OBOL for a long time and I just checked
recent posts for either of these two birds from the archives
and did not see any reports of either.
Yesterday about noon I saw a Red-necked Phalarope just
north of the Maritime Museum before a squall blew me back
to my car. I got a lousy but probably identifiable cell phone
photo of it. This was in Astoria.
On Saturday afternoon I got a fleeting but definable to an
Oriole look at bird on SW Coast Avenue just south of the
Inn at Spanish head in Lincoln City. There were birds
bathing in a gutter on a large house. They were jockeying
for position. Really all I saw was wow that is a bright yellow
bird and look at the black on the chin/upper breast and then
it dove into a large dense shrub never to show itself again.
I waited for quite awhile and nothing...
This time of year it could be any of the orioles, I was so
bummed to not get a better look. I tried again Sat night and
yesterday morning to no avail. If someone can forward this
to OBOL if you think anyone might be interested there I
would appreciate it.
Roosting in Kirkland,
