MACG SEEN This time of year nearly every day brings a new bird for the year. The migrants are pouring back into our mountains now from their southerly winter vacations. I went up to Greensprings Inn in the Cascades where they held a book-signing for my FREEWAY BIRDING this afternoon. Beforehand I birded around the lovely Greensprings Inn woodlands (about 46oo’ elevation). This MacGillivray’s Warbler was singing…and elusive as usual, hiding behind ponderosa needles.
A short drive up Little Hyatt Lake Road found me among Chipping Sparrows:CHSP IN-PINE
Both birds were new for my Oregon list for 2013. Now the list tops 190. It will go past 200 during my trip to Malheur at the end of May, if not before.


  1. The MacGillivrays is not an easy bird to find…thank you for this siting.
