Heavy shorebird movements during the week brought a PACIFIC GOLDEN-PLOVER, 400 WHIMBREL, 30 MARBLED GODWITS, and 30 BLACK-BELLIED PLOVERS to Wireless Road near Astoria and SOLITARY SANDPIPERS to Dune City, Newport, and Eugene. A BAIRD’S SANDPIPER was at Yaquina Bay April 21 and at Summer Lake April 22. On April 24 Two WHIMBRELS were along Glasser Drive near Lebanon
