Hello, this is the Audubon Society of Portland Rare Bird Report. This report
was made Thursday May 1. If you anything to add call Harry Nehls at
503-233-3976.

During the morning of April 25 a bright Rustic Bunting was seen and
photographed on Mt. Tabor in Portland. It was not relocated. A male Hooded
Oriole was photographed April 17 in Tualatin. A probable pair of Blue
Grosbeaks were seen April 27 in Grants Pass. On April 30 a Hawaiian Petrel
was photographed off Curry County.

Heavy migrations during the week brought most of the flycatcher species and
several reports of Calliope Hummingbirds and early Swainson¹s Thrushes west
of the Cascades. Very heavy movements of White-fronted Geese were reported
during the week through Western Oregon with a peak on April 28. Shorebird
movements are still a bit slow along the coast, but a good movement of
Caspian Terns
Was reported during the week. Tufted puffins are now returning to their
nesting rocks.

On April 26 a Lapland Longspur was at the South Jetty of Yaquina Bay. A
Mountain Bluebird and a Western Kingbird were at the Nestucca Bay NWR April
28. On April 26 a Black-necked Stilt was at the Tualatin River NWR. A flock
of probable Whimbrels passed over Independence April 30. A Caspian Tern was
at Baskett Slough NWR April 30. A Sabine¹s Gull was seen April 24 at Finley
NWR. A pair of territorial Great-tailed Grackles were reported during the
week at the Denman Wildlife Management Area near Medford.

A Marbled Godwit was at the mouth of Hood River April 30. Also on April 30 a
Band-tailed Pigeon was in Bend. On April 30 a Red Knot and five Short-billed
Dowitchers were among flocks of shorebirds along Township Road south of
Klamath Falls. An American Golden-Plover was photographed April 26 near
Alicel north of LaGrande. That day a Red-breasted Merganser was on Wallowa
Lake.

That¹s it for this week.
