Cascadia Hummingbird Report 02/04/2002

The leading edge of the hummingbird migration may be upon us. Two
reports of Selasphorus hummingbirds were posted last week from the
south coast of Oregon. Neither reporter was able to confidently
sort them as Allen's or Rufous Hummingbirds (though I suspect they were
Allen's Hummingbirds, since females were reported).

ANNA'S HUMMINGBIRDS are being regularly reported from throughout western
Oregon and Washington, including some display behaviors.

Port Orford, OR 01-28-2002 42.74988 124.49554
Brookings, OR 02-02-2002 42.05976 124.29079

In flower news, the manzanita (Arctostaphylos columbiana) is blooming
along the south coast of Oregon, as are ornamental plums (Prunus sp.).
The willows (Salix sp.) are putting out catkins already in many places
along the north coast of Oregon; south coast of Washington.
