Hello, this is the Audubon Society of Portland Rare Bird Report. This
recording was made Thursday August 2. If you have anything to add call
Harry Nehls at 503-233-3976.

On July 26 a MOCKINGBIRD was at Falls City, west of Dallas.

A juvenile FORSTER'S TERN was at Brookings July 29. The 16 WHITE PELICANS
that have been at Tillamook Bay since May were seen again July 27.

Post-breeding dispersals and early migrations are now becoming obvious,
especially among shorebirds. Peak numbers of SEMIPALMATED PLOVERS were
reported during the week, as well as a RED KNOT and 2 SEMIPALMATED
SANDPIPERS at Bandon; a thousand SANDERLINGS and a BAIRD'S SANDPIPER at
Siltcoos Outlet; 2 PECTORAL SANDPIPERS at the South Jetty of the Siuslaw
River; 120 SURFBIRDS at Seal Rock State park; and 2 SOLITARY SANDPIPERS
at the Prineville Sewage Ponds.

Juvenile BLACK TERNS fledged during the week and were seen at Ridgefield
NWR, Baskett Slough NWR, and at Fern Ridge Reservoir.

Six BLACK SWIFTS were at Steigerwald NWR July 31 and August 1. The BARRED
OWL family at the Portland Audubon Sanctuary was conspicuous during the
week along the trail near the pond. Five MUTE SWANS were at the Fernhill
Wetlands in forest Grove July 27. At least 45 WHITE PELICANS are now at
Fern Ridge Reservoir.

An almost completely white ANNA'S HUMMINGBIRD came to a Bend feeder July
29.

Thats it for this week.
