swampsparrow Varied_Thrush_Duane_Portland_OR

Swamp Sparrow and male Varied Thrush.  Sparrow is wintering at North Mountain Park, Ashland.  The thrush was in northwestern Portland.  The sparrow is uncommon here in Oregon but the Varied Thrush is hard to match for glamour, even though he can disappear in the dense shade where he spends most of his time.

Sparrow shot by Emmalisa Whalley.  Thrush shot by Thomas Duane, a newly arrived Oregon resident.
