Wow, that seems remarkable! Any precedent for that kind of numbers on that section of the Columbia R.? 

Any ideas on possible causes that might be pushing (or drawing) Red-throated Loons in such numbers? 

Wondering if this might provide some context for the lone bird that local listers have been twitching on both Linn & Benton Co. sides of the Willamette River off of Willamette Park in south Corvallis recently. Not unheard of but rare for the mid-Willamette Valley, especially for this late in winter when most migrants have found their way to coastal waters. 

There have been some recent storms but nothing exceptional compared with past winters. Any insights on "baitfish" abundance in near-coastal waters?

Hi all, 

A local falconer lost a juvenile male Red-tailed Hawk in/near E.E. Wilson Wildlife Area yesterday. 

If you see a juvenile Red-tail with "jesses" dangling from its feet, please let me know when and where, and I'll pass this on. 

Thanks, 
Joel

In addition to the Red-throated Loon that continues to be seen on the Willamette River at Willamette Park (usually just north of the main gravel bar), this report of a RED-NECKED GREBE also popped up. The location is in the old flooded gravel quarry along US Hwy 20, a couple miles east of I-5.
