On August 24 an UPLAND SANDPIPER briefly touched down at the Corvallis

fair sized flocks. On August 23 a flock 19 was at Wickiup Reservoir. About

RED-NECKED PHALAROPES were off Boiler Bay. ELEGANT TERNS are now being seen
all along the Oregon and Washington coast

A WESTERN KINGBIRD was at the Portland Airport August 21. On August 25 a
