Hello, this is the Audubon Society of Portland Rare Bird Report. This report
was made Thursday September 5. If you have anything to add call Harry Nehls
at 503-233-3976.

Nocturnal migrations of SWAINSON'S THRUSHES, LEWIS'S WOODPECKERS, and the
first flocks of WHITE-FRONTED GEESE were among the migration highlights
during the week.

Two RUFFS were seen September 1 at New River south of Bandon. A
BUFF-BREASTED SANDPIPER is now on the North Spit of Coos Bay. A BLACK PHOEBE
was on the spit September 4. On September 1, 25 GREAT EGRETS were along the
lower Siuslaw River and over 60 were at Yaquina Bay. A probable CLAY-COLORED
SPARROW was at Yaquina Bay August 31. On September 3 two BUFF-BREASTED
SANDPIPERS were on the Bayocean Shorebird Flats on Tillamook Bay. The next
day two well described RUFFS were on the beach at Cape Meares Village. A
BUFF-BREASTED SANDPIPER was at the Necanicum River mouth September 1. A
STILT SANDPIPER was at Stanley Lake in Seaside September 4.

On September 2 an adult RED-SHOULDERED HAWK was at Ridgefield NWR. The Coon
Point RED-SHOULDERED is still being seen on Sauvie Island. A SOLITARY
SANDPIPER was at North Plains September 1. A STILT SANDPIPER has been at the
Fernhill Wetlands since August 31. An AVOCET and a late SEMIPALMATED
SANDPIPER were at Agate Lake near White City September 2.

On August 31 a NORTHERN WATERTHRUSH was on Malheur NWR at Buena Vista
Station, a RED-SHOULDERED HAWK at P Ranch, and a probable BROAD-TAILED
HUMMINGBIRD on Steens Mountain. Lots of BLACK ROSY-FINCHES at Steens Summit
now.

Thats it for this week.
