Hi all, 

When I got back home from a quick trip back to Minnesota, I found a report in my inbox from John Tietjen and Pat Cummings. On Tuesday afternoon they had a male Rufous Hummingbird turn up at their feeder north of Corvallis. 

Southern Minnesota has plenty of Horned Larks, Snow Buntings, and a couple feet of snow blowing around and drifting all over the rural roads, if anyone is still hankering for winter birds in appropriate conditions. When I got back to PDX and retrieved our car from the long-term parking lot late last night, I found a bit of snow on the windshield but otherwise it sure feels like spring here. 

Happy migration,
