Hello, this is the Audubon Society of Portland Rare Bird Report. This report

The Beaverton BLUE GROSBEAK continues but is becoming more active. On May 5
a female BROAD-TAILED HUMMINGBIRD visited a feeder at Camp Adair north of
Corvallis. A BLACK-AND-WHITE WARBLER was Malheur NWR Headquarters May 3 as
migrants are now arriving in numbers. Two RED-NECKED GREBES are now on the
Hines Sewage Ponds.

Heavy movements of PACIFIC LOONS, RED-NECKED PHALAROPES, and BONAPARTE¹S
GULLS are now passing just offshore. Shorebird numbers are now peaking with
the main movement of WESTERN SANDPIPERS passing through. Several RED KNOTS
and RUDDY TURNSTONES were also reported. A movement of SWAINSON¹S THRUSHES
is now arriving. A number of WESTERN TANAGERS and BLACK-HEADED GROSBEAKS are
being reported.

On May 3 a RED-EYED VIREO was at the Sandy River Delta. At least 30 WHITE
PELICANS continue in the Portland-Vancouver area. On May 2 a CHAT had
returned at Skyline Blvd and Moreland Road north of Portland. A GRASSHOPPER
SPARROW is now being seen along Sellers Road north of Banks. Others are
being reported elsewhere in the Umpqua and Willamette Valleys. On May 1 a
LAPLAND LONGSPUR was along Livermore Road north of Baskett Slough NWR. A
