Sauvie Island.

I went over to Sauvie Island yesterday morning to look at some sparrows on Rentenaar Road.  I had initially planned on walking the dogs while there, but it was just too damn cold for me.  Maybe with a second pair of gloves and socks... Speaking of, can anyone recommend some decent gloves?? 

Anyway... I found oodles of White-crowned Sparrows:


Seriously.  Oodles. 



I think there's eleven in that photo.  And one more, because he posed so nicely for me:


I also found my first Lincoln's Sparrow of the year....


A bunch of Sandhill Cranes flew in while I was there too. 


I don't usually get to be so close to so many.. It was nice.



Good times!
