Hi all,

This a perfect situation to make use of public transportation, since the
bus:

http://www.co.benton.or.us/pw/stf/coast.php

is nearly as fast as you can get there in a car, and parking in downtown
Newport is always difficult.

I tried to put this info out on the Midvalley list but there seems to be
a problem with the name of the bird.

Unfortunately it's too late to catch either of the two morning buses
from the Amtrak station in Albany or downtown Corvallis

The 3:25 PM bus will get you there by 5:05 PM but you would either need
to overnight in Newport, or hitch a ride home (unless you can somehow
see the bird in 10 minutes before the last bus leaves at 5:15 PM). But
for anyone planning a trip tomorrow, the timetable is much more
favorable.

Happy car-free birding,
Joel
