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

a Hines feeder. On May 21 a COMMON GRACKLE was in Fields. On May 24 one was

A wave of BLACK-HEADED GROSBEAKS during the week brought a number of
ROSE-BREASTED GROSBEAKS. ROSE-BREASTED reports came from Brookings, Gold

A major night flight of SWAINSON¹S THRUSHES was reported during the week. A
good movement of BLACK SWIFTS was reported along the coast. A RED PHALAROPE

On May 23 about 20 WHITE PELICANS were at Finley NWR. On May 25 an

Eugene. Seven SANDERLINGS were at the mouth of Hood River May 20. On May 23
a pair of GNATCATCHERS were seen building a nest south of The Dalles.

Storms in the Malheur area during the week grounded many migrants. Hundreds
