Species abundance data for development of this checklist encompasses all units of Nestucca Bay National Wildlife Refuge including Neskowin Marsh. Species Abundance Code Legend ABUNDANT: Occurs in moderate to large numbers, and easily found in appropriate habitat at the right time of year. COMMON: Occurs in small to moderate numbers, and usually easy to find in appropriate habitat at the right time of year. FAIRLY COMMON: Occurs in small numbers, and usually—but not always—found with some effort in appropriate habitat at the right time of year. UNCOMMON: Occurs annually in very small numbers. Not to be expected on any given day, but may be found with extended effort over the course of the appropriate season(s). RARE: Occurs less than annually, but there tends to be a pattern over time at the right time of year in appropriate habitat. ACCIDENTAL: Represents an exceptional occurrence that might not be repeated again for decades. IRREGULAR: Represents an irruptive species whose numbers are highly variable from year to year. There may be small to even large numbers present in one year, while in another year it may be absent altogether.
