Guest photographer Maryann Nielson spotted these birds sitting on a light post, which seems to me to be the perfect spot to watch the sunset. Thanks, Maryann!
I’m not sure how obvious it is from the photo (click on it to see it larger), but there are a lot of birds in the branches of this tree. I count at least twelve or thirteen. I tried to get closer shots of them, but they were pretty far away, and I was behind a fence. I have no idea what kind of birds they are, as usual.
This was taken along the path by the wetland area off of Sunrise Dr.
I went down to the park and ride off of Cascade Highway, just north of Stayton, and spotted this pretty boy or girl getting some food in the swampy pond thing nearby. I think it might be a great blue heron, but I also might be wrong.
This photo is heavily cropped, because he or she was pretty far away.
Guest photographer Tom Miller has a double dose of redwing goodness for today. Above is what Tom calls Mr. Redwing, and below is his female counterpart.
Great photos, as always. Thanks, Tom!
This is too cool. From guest photographer Denny Barnes:
While out with my dog hiking we saw these two battling over ownership of this oak tree. Neither one was willing to give it up and were still squabbling as we went out of sight. These Red Breasted Sapsuckers can be pretty feisty.
They’re gorgeous. Thanks, Denny!
Guest photographer Maryann Nielson was looking up at the sky (because that’s where the sky is located, unless they moved it without telling me), and caught this bird mid-flight.
