I love Cathedral Park. It's beautiful, you can walk out onto a dock in the Willamette, there's an off-leash area, and the colors are stunning in the fall. I always bring my camera but I don't usually find many interesting birds.
This morning I took Jake there as a belated mini-celebration of his 5th birthday... It was super pretty and after wandering around the river shoreline I followed the sounds of little birds in the trees. I managed to find my first kinglets! They've been on my mind lately because everyone seems to see them, but I never had.
A Golden-crowned Kinglet!
I also saw what I think is a Ruby-crowned Kinglet (let me know if I'm totally off on this one!!)
Also in the trees were tons of Bushtits, Brown Creepers, and Black-capped Chickadees... Good times!
