Looks like there might be at least a couple of Red-eyed Vireos singing
in the north unit of LSNA (Luckiamute Landing). -- joel

>From Will Wright's eBird entry (unfortunately, he didn't post this to
the listserve), I saw that yesterday he heard and saw a REVI more or
less where Lisa reported her bird, and he heard another in the
cottonwoods "between the Luckiamute R. and the big field NE of the
parking lot" - so there seem to be at least two singing males present.
The area sure looks like it could support multiple pairs.

        Hi Hendrik,
        
        Glad you managed to find one. The area you describe is actually
        the same place where Bill Tice found a pair in 1998. There is a
        lot of suitable habitat for them to choose from (including large
        areas that are out of earshot from the trail). 
        
        I think individuals do range over fairly large territories so
        perhaps you hear the same bird that Lisa heard, but it wouldn't
        surprise me if there were multiple pairs in there. Carolyn
        Kindell didn't say exactly where she heard the one on Thursday
        evening, just somewhere along the trail.
        
        Joel
