Two birds appeared today that have not been around this summer…it’s not their breeding territory.  But they winter here in the McMinnville area.  Chestnut-backed Chickadee and Lesser Goldfinch.  The last of these chickadees I saw back in June.  It’s the first time I’ve seen a Lesser Goldfinch in my garden in 2018.

I will be teaching a three-week birding class here in McMinnville this fall.  Starts October 18th.  Three talks, three walks.  You can click here for the park & rec program, class is listed on page 23 of the PDF.

Our likely Saturday field trip destinations will be Hagg Lake, Tualatin River NWR and Baskett Slough.   The latter only if we get some rain before then.  Its practically a desert now.
