Yesterday morning I walked the dogs along the Frenchman's Bar Trail and around the park.
Shorebirds were abundant, but unfortunately they were not the regular kind.
White-crowned Sparrow & Crow
Also along the river, this Osprey nest was looking full...
It wasn't just full of Osprey either- some other birds were flying in and out as well:
I can't quite tell what kind of bird that is flying in under the nest- House Sparrow maybe? We walked along the trail through the woods and found a couple Bullock's Oriole families. This young one was chasing its pop around and occasionally trying to find its own food.
Also getting chased around was a chickadee by an obnoxious House Wren...
Near the beginning of the trail is a small field and across that field was this guy:
He or she was not pleased to be spotted. We moved on down the trail to another spot that opened up to the river. A stream of gulls was flying by...
When they reached a certain spot they stopped streaming by and started just soaring instead... It was interesting.
It didn't seem like they were still over water, but I guess that's actually Sauvie Island there, so who knows.
