Subject: [obol] Good Benton County Birds Yesterday and Today

Hi all,
Nolan Clements and I birded Philomath Sewage Ponds and Cabell Marsh at
Finley National Wildlife Refuge yesterday, and Cabell again today. 1
STILT SANDPIPER continued at Cabell yesterday, along with 5 Greater
Yellowlegs, two [Long-billed] Dowitchers, 5 Least Sandpipers, and 21

This afternoon at Cabell, the Stilt Sand[piper] was a miss, but was
replaced with an AMERICAN AVOCET in clear view. Other added birds were
Spotted Sandpiper and Lesser Yellowlegs, at least one each.

Early today, Duncan Evered refound a likely LEAST FLYCATCHER at
Willamette Park and located a TENNESSEE WARBLER. This afternoon a large
group of birders including us, Duncan, Will Wright, Kai Frueh, Bill
Tice, and Mark Baldwin failed to refind the Tennessee, but did locate a
single Nashville Warbler. Other warblers included Townsend's, Yellow,
Orange-crowned, [Black-throated] Gray, and Myrtle's and Audubon's
Yellow-rumps. The park seems to be the best known spot in Benton for
passerine migrants this time of year.

Good birding,
Caleb Centanni
