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

A bright male TUFTED DUCK is now being seen on the Columbia River in North
Portland. It is being seen off Marine Drive east of I205 among the large
rafts of GREATER and LESSER SCAUP. On March 3 a female NORTHERN CARDINAL
visited a feeder in Salem. The Portland Waterfront SLATY-BACKED GULL
continues to be seen.

During the week major flights of SANDHILL CRANES, TREE and VIOLET- GREEN
SWALLOWS, RUFOUS HUMMINGBIRDS, and SAY¹S PHOEBES entered the state. Good
numbers of BLACK-LEGGED KITTIWAKES were moving along the coast. On February
28 a KITTIWAKE was photographed on the Columbia River off Columbia City near
St. Helens.

On March 2 three GLAUCOUS GULLS and three LAPLAND LONGSPURS were on Clatsop
Beach north of Gearhart.

On February 26 three TRUMPETER SWANS were at Hatfield Lake. A singing
BEWICK¹S WREN was found February 27 at Lower Bridge west of Terrebonne. On
February 26 two GREAT-TAILED GRACKLES and a MOCKINGBIRD were seen near
Klamath Falls.

Waterfowl are now gathering in the Klamath Basin. On February 28 a BEWICK¹S
TUNDRA SWAN was picked out of about 10,000 TUNDRA SWANS in the Lower Klamath
NWR. On February 26 a white GYRFALCON was reported east of Worden.

That¹s it for this week.
