Tri-county: Orange-crowned and Wilson’s Warblers, Western Tanagers and Black-headed Grosbeaks are in abundance. At lower densities Hammond’s and Pacific-slope Flycatchers.
In the metro area we are still waiting on Western Wood Pewee, Lazuli Bunting, Bullock’s Oriole and Swainson’s Thrush. And of course the last to the party; Willow Flycatcher.
It’s a really cool radar loop today. There is a BIG push up the Willamette Valley settling in the Metro/Tri-county area. Maybe the wait will be over for the previously mentioned migrants. I’ll have to wait on the reports from those with more time and resources, but i wouldn’t be surprised if that push brings new faces into the region.
And …. it looks like you’re going to have to go HERE to play the loop. I knew this was going to happen soon; i’ve run out of disk space. I will have to put together “birds over portland – 3”. That will take some time, so, the next few posts will be narratives. Crap!
