IT’S IN THE AIR

You must have noticed if live in western Oregon: spring is…

Just today I saw for the first time this year testosterone-crazed male Anna’s Hummingbird doing u-shaped territorial dives.  How crazed?  Think White House (male) apologist going on about how the women and children on the southern border are just coming here to vote illegally, or apply for food stamps.

Then there was a flicker calling repeatedly his spring thing, the “I own this tree” repetitive call. And in our garden I heard my first House Finch song of the season. Another first for the year, above Joe Dancer Park, a circling harrier, high in the sky, slowly moving north on migration.HARR-MAR11

Tomorrow night I am giving the talk at Salem Audubon Society gathering.  I will be describing the birding richness of the Klamath Basin
