...and an even rarer Red-flanked Bluetail (Tarsiger cyanurus) found in New Westminster, BC.
The Ovenbird would be a nice but unshocking Oregon rarity;
"one of the more frequent vagrant “eastern” warblers encountered in the West in both spring and fall (approaching 1,000 records in California and close to 40 in Oregon, where it is no longer on the state review list"although I understand this bird is a first record for Multnomah County and Portland proper - most of these vagrants end up at the desert oases near Fields or Malheur.
But the bluetail is a genuine North American oddity, only the third North American record outside the western Aleutians for this Eurasian vagrant.
I regret that work holds me here, because while I am no longer a truly devoted birder I remain that lowest of birdwatching life forms, the hardcore "lister" (or "twitcher", the Brits would call me), and if I thought that this little rascal would hang around New West I'd sure as hell chase it.
