Hello, this is the Audubon Society of Portland Rare Bird report. This report
was made Thursday March 26. If you have anything to report call Harry Nehls
at 503-233-3976.

A male NOTHERN CARDINAL is now being seen in Aurora, but it is elusive. The
downtown Portland SLATY-BACKED GULL and the Marine Drive TUFTED DUCK
continue to be seen.

Very heavy movements of TURKEY VUTURES were reported during the week.
Increased sightings of BALD EAGLES, SHOREBIRDS, YELLOW-RUMPED and
ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLERS may indicate migrations also. Heavy movements of
TREE and VIOLET-GREEN SWALLOWS during the week brought a few BARN and CLIFF
SWALLOWS.

On March 25 a CALLIOPE HUMMINGBIRD visited a Beaverton feeder. Two MOUNTAIN
BLUEBIRDS are now being seen at the Sandy River Delta near Troutdale. On
March 20 a EURASIAN GREEN-WINGED TEAL and 14 GREAT EGRETS were at Ankeny
NWR. That a CASSIN¹S FINCH was in Detroit.

A GLAUCOUS GULL was seen March 22 in Hood River. That day two WHITE-THROATED
SWIFTS were along Philippi Canyon Road in Gilliam County. On March 20 a
SCRUB JAY was among a flock of STELLER¹S and PINYON JAYS behind Ray¹s Food
Market in Sisters.

That¹s it for this week.
