Hello, this is the Audubon Society of Portland Rare Bird Report. This report
was made Thursday July 9. If you have anything to add call Harry Nehls at
503-233-3976.

The REDSTART continues on the North spit of Coos Bay. It is being seen
across from the boat ramp. On July 5 a CALLIOPE HUMMINGBIRD visited a feeder
in Eugene. A NIGHTHAWK is apparently summering in the Orenco area east of
Hillsboro.

Most reports this week involved to heavy shorebird movement arriving during
the week. At the Fern Ridge Reservoir July 3 was a flock of 2200 WESTERN
SANDPIPERS that included six SEMIPALMATED SANDPIPERS. Other shorebirds noted
were 300 LEAST SANDPIPERS, 100 GREATER YELLOWLEGS, two LESSER YELLOWLEGS,
and 22 LONG-BILLED DOWITCHERS. 200 WESTERN SANDPIPERS on the beach at
Florence July 8.

That¹s it for this week.
