The Salishan BROWN THRASHER, Coos Bay KING EIDER, and the GYRFALCON near Halsey were seen during the week. 

A movement of SAY'S PHOEBES brought many to eastern Oregon and singles near  Gearhart, Astoria Airport and Oaks Bottom in Portland. WESTERN KINGBIRDS were reported March 20 at Oaks Bottom and the Portland Airport. An early WESTERN TANAGER was at Warren north of Portland March 19. Singing COMMON YELLOWTHROATS were at Coos Bay and Corvallis during the week. OSPREY are now moving onto their nests.
