This is the new walkway at the recently transformed Westmoreland Park. This used to be THE gull spot in Portland, as well as THE spot for Eurasian Wigeon. Not anymore. I can't complain about the changes because they're all for the better with the creek channel restored and new native plants all around.
On Monday I walked to Whitaker Ponds in hopes of finding an owl for my motorless list. No dice. But there was a nice pile of geese representing various subspecies I would like to someday understand. Was planning to do some studying on that this evening, but I am still too frazzled from the storm.
This morning I went up to Ridgefield for a bit where things were pretty dang uneventful.
The only event worth mentioning was my crushing of a Northern Pintail. This is not something that occurs frequently, so I was pleased.
Now back to stressing over the storm, which has thankfully died down quite a bit since I started this post. Good times.
