Hi Gary,

I have reported Black Phoebe in 5 different locations in Linn County in the past 3 weeks. Paul's explanation seems very true.

Hi Gary,

Black Phoebe is a species which has expanded rapidly northward into Oregon and even Washington during the past decade, so the Audubon maps are seriously outdated.  I have seen this species previously at Truax Island and several other places nearby during the past few years.  Glad to see someone besides me goes there and is reporting birds from there!  Thanks for posting your observation.

Paul

Today about noon I saw a Black Phoebe at Truax Island, which is a greenway reserve adjacent to the Willamette River, off of Riverside Drive in Linn County between Albany and Corvallis. Audubon says this is a little out of their range, which on their map comes north only about as far as Southern Oregon. Any other local sightings?

Gary
