Hello, this is the Audubon Society of Portland Rare Bird Report. This report
was made Thursday August 14. If you have anything to add call Harry Nehls at
503-233-3976.

Hot weather slowed birding during the week, but the fall migration is
increasing noticeable.

CATBIRDS continue to be reported along the nature trail at the Marine
Science Center on Yaquina Bay. On August 12 a flock of 16 ELEGANT TERNS were
at the South Jetty there. On August 8 a POMARINE JAEGER was off Boiler Bay.
Streams of SOOTY SHEARWATERS continue off northern Oregon beaches.

On August 7 about 24 WHITE PELICANS were at the north section of Sturgeon
Lake on Sauvie Island. A large number of GREAT EGRETS and GREAT BLUE HERONS
have gathered recently on Racetrack Lake on the island. On August 13 a
BLACK-BELLIED PLOVER was with them. A RED-SHOULDERED HAWK was reported
August 13 at Steigerwald NWR.

That¹s it for this week.
