April 15, 2018

We took a quick trip to the Oregon Coast on April 15, 2018, when Abby was in town last month. We stopped by Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area  to look for a Brown Booby, which had been seen there that week. No booby. I did, however, see “a few” Common Murres and one Black Oystercatcher, Oregon 2018 Birds #141 and #142.

Later on during the week of April 15, I got two additional 2018 Oregon birds: The Vaux’s Swifts arrived and are now daily visitors in the skies over our house (I adore listening to them). I also got my FOY Orange-Crowned Warbler in Minto-Brown.

And, on April 22, 2018, I finally got some Pine Siskins in the Bronson’s Creek area in Cedar Mill, Oregon.
