Hello, this is the Audubon Society of Portland Rare Bird Report. This report

The downtown Portland SLATY-BACKED GULL and the Marine drive TUFTED PUFFIN
continue to be seen.

RUFOUS HUMMINGBIRDS are now swarming along the southern Oregon coast. Local
VIOLET-GREEN SWALLOWS arrived during the week, large flocks are being seen
in many areas.

On March 16 a flock of BLACK-THROATED GRAY WARBLERS were at Bethany Pond in
Washington County north of Hillsboro. On March 18 five male and several
female EURASIAN WIGEON along with a EURASIAN GREEN-WINGED TEAL were at the
Tualatin NWR. A surprisingly early HERMIT WARBLER was in Eugene March 14.

LONG-BILLED CURLEWS are now arriving east of the Cascades. On March 12 three
