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

On March 9 a YELLOW-BILLED LOON was in the channel off the South Jetty of 
Yaquina Bay. Another was on Netarts Bay March 13. 

Migrant CANADA GEESE, OSPREY, and early shorebirds are now being

estuaries. 

The wintering MOCKINGBIRD continues to be seen on the North Spit of Coos 
Bay. Thirteen EURASIAN WIGEON remain on Kilches Meadow, north of 
Tillamook. Two LAPLAND LONGSPURS were at the South Jetty of the Columbia 
River March 14. 

The HARRIS'S and CLAY-COLORED SPARROWS continue to be seen at the East 
Side Checking Station on Sauvie Island. Good numbers of CRANES are still 
being reported from the Island. The PALM WARBLER is still along 33d. 
Avenue north of Columbia Blvd. in North Portland. On March 13 at least 
three TRICOLORED BLACKBIRDS were at the Gertz Road site in North 
Portland, and nine NIGHT-HERONS are still at their North Portland 
wintering roost. 

A COMMON REDPOLL has been at Bill Thackaberry's feeders near Lebanon 
during the week. Two SAY'S PHOEBES were at Eugene last week-end. 

TREE and VIOLET-GREEN SWALLOWS are now moving through eastern Oregon. 
Seventy DOUBLE-CRESTED CORMORANTS were at Haystack Reservoir near Madras 
March 11. 

A BLUE ROSS'S GOOSE was among the 15,000 SNOW and ROSS'S GEESE at Miller 
Island WA south of Klamath Falls March 11. Four WHITE PELICANS were 
nearby.

The flock of SNOW BUNTINGS are still being seen along Golf Course Road 
near Enterprise. The BOHEMIAN WAXWINGS continue in Joseph. The number of
