Recent birds.

I kicked off my 5-day weekend with yet another trip to Clackamas County.  I wasn't planning on working much harder on my list there but a couple people had reported American Three-toed Woodpeckers and I could not resist.  So early on the 4th I headed out to find some Americans at Summit Lake. 


I could hear a woodpecker as soon as I got out of the car, and following directions from Sarah Swanson, I easily located the nest area. 


Yay lifer!  They seemed pretty annoyed with our presence so we moved on quickly.  We hiked back through the campground and followed random trails, eventually making a big loop.  Highlights were a Barrow's Goldeneye with five ducklings on the lake and Hermit Warblers everywhere.  A couple of Pine Siskins were snacking on leftovers on one of the campsite grills. 


I stopped by Little Crater Lake on the way back...

 
Yesterday morning I went out to the Sandy River Delta where the day seemed to start of dark and only get darker.  Bullock's Orioles brightened things up...

That's about it for the week....  I've leave you with this guy:


Good times.
