One of those migration-season mornings you fantasize. Huge wave of newcomers had arrived overnight. At 645AM there were just the three of us, one volunteer filling feeders and dozens of hungry birds. First Plumbeous Vireo and Dusky Flycatcher of the season. Also–rive warblers including Nashville and Wilson’s. Lazuli Buntings, Evening Grosbeak, Warbling Vireo, several male Western Tanagers, both goldfinches, multiple Caspian Terns. Forty species in an hour of intensive birding.


  1. Nice! I just birded for an hour this morning in St. Paul. Twenty-seven species, including warbling vireo, northern parula, black-and-white warbler, house wren, and yellow-rumps.

  2. Wow, what a fall out at Malheur! I will be traveling to Malheur on May 23 for a few days and would like to chat with you when you return to Salem.
