Originally found by Steve Warner, at Neawanna Wetlands in Seaside. A great find! I have only seen Black-throated Sparrows before at Diamond Craters, near Malheur NWR.

Northern Waterthrush

Brownsmead, near the Grange, in thick brush along the RR tracks. This individual was first reported by Mike Patterson a couple of weeks ago.

A rare bird in Oregon, except for an isolated population that summers and breeds in the Central Cascades and can be found along Crescent Creek. There are only a few previous Clatsop County reports.

Sandhill Crane

During our Cannon Beach First Sunday monthly birdwalk on Oct. 1, another birder alerted us to an unusual bird on the beach. We went to check it out, and found this juvenile Sandhill Crane! It was standing on the beach at the mouth of Ecola Creek, among the seagulls.
