Some Oregon Lifers

I got to add some Oregon lifers on the Malheur trip. My state list now stands at 278.  The ABA life list leader for Oregon is Sheran Wright, at 454.  Got a way to go, I see.  Here’s my favorite lifer from the trip, a Sage Sparrow we found northeast of Silver Lake in Lake County.

One of our birders observed that the Sage has the eyebrows of Andy Rooney.  Also, the bird has that lone black spot in the middle of his chest, like a Lark Sparrow.

One other lifer I captured by camera: Black-chinned Hummingbird, blogged earlier.


  1. Great pics and blog. Thanks.
