Ovenbird Pays Surprise Visit

OvenbirdBy Robert Frey, KBO Research Biologist

16 July, 2013

KBO biologists captured, banded, and released an Ovenbird today at our Upper Klamath Lake field station – a species rarely encountered in Oregon. It was determined to be an after-hatching year bird (hatched in 2012 or before), age and sex unknown. The Ovenbird is considered a regular transient in Oregon (that is, the species is encountered at least once a year somewhere in the state). KBO has banded and released two other Ovenbirds – one in 1997 and another in 2004. Cool bird!
