Hello, this is the Audubon Society of Portland Rare Bird Report. This report
was made Thursday February 2. If have anything to add call Harry Nehls at

The BLUE JAY that is wintering in the Rogue Valley near Talent continues to
be seen. 

The Yaquina Bay SNOWY OWL continues to be seen as are the four at the South
Jetty of the Columbia River. The SNOWY OWL seen near Alvadore apparently
moved over to the nearby Eugene Airport.

A probable RUFOUS HUMMINGBIRD was reported January 26 in Coos Bay. The male
COSTA¹S HUMMINGBIRD coming to Barbara Griffin¹s feeders in North Bend is
still being seen. On January 27 a VESPER SPARROW was seen on the North Spit
of Coos Bay. The MARBLED GODWIT continues to be seen on the mud flat behind
the Marine Science Center on Yaquina Bay.

Large numbers of SANDHILL CRANES, SNOW GEESE, and TUNDRA SWANS are now being
seen on Sauvie Island. The WHITE-TAILED KITE is still being seen along Oak
Island Road. On January 31 a male BARROW¹S GOLDENEYE was on Smith Lake in
North Portland. A NORTHERN SHRIKE is in the same area.

On January 25 ten BARN SWALLOWS were at Baskett Slough NWR. On January 29
ten BARNS and 30 TREE SWALLOWS were at Ankeny NWR. A large flock of
CANVASBACKS and thousands of DUNLIN are wintering on the refuge.

On January 27 a FERRUGINOUS HAWK was in the Rogue Valley along Kirtland Road
near White City. On January 30 over 100 BARROW¹S GOLDENEYES were south of
Madras on the Metolius Sewage Ponds.

That¹s it for this week.
