YELLOWTHROATS IN THE CITY

Today the dog and I found a couple Common Yellowthroats feeding in the willows at the Wetlands Park section of Joe Dancer in McMinnville. I suspect this species also nests along the inaccesssible sections of Cozine Creek here in town. I think we were seeing a female and a fledgling from they way one followed the other around.cy in suncy2 in sunTwo towhees in the grass:sp two in grssAlso at the Wetlands was this wood-pewee, standing tall. He caught one large flying insect and swallowed it after returning to his perch.wpw2-at JDwpw3-at JDwpw-a
Several times today I have waxwings in the treetops. There is so much fruit around right now they must be over-worked and overfed.cw in liteThe household House Finch at our feeders, ever hungry is he.IMG_2606IMG_2642Joe Dancer Park, Yamhill, Oregon, US
