We are now settled into a typical town neighborhood, no national forest up the hill, no forest across the street.  So we now have both Starlings and Collared-Doves as neighbors.  Both are species we almost never saw where we lived before, in Ashland.

At the birdbath today I saw my first Yamhill County family of Bushtits.BT-DAWN (1280x960)Those gray ghosts are images of Bushtits in flight. BT-DAWN2 (1280x960) BT-DAWN3 (1280x960) BT-DAWN4 (1280x960) BT-DAWN5 (1280x960)Then the camera suddenly decided to focus on the distant foliage, rendering even static Bushtits as ghostly images.
