SPRING JUST NOW ENDING BUT SUMMER HEAT HAS ARRIVED

While we get rain here in the Willamette Valley, much of the west is getting record heat.

On a Salem Audubon field trip this morning we watched both adult birds carrying food to the hilltop Osprey nest at the Audubon Nature Reserve in West Salem. The mist abundant bird there seemed to be Spotted Towhee.

In your next life, want to be an acrobat?

At the feeders: Redd-breasted Nuthatch, House Finch, Lesser Goldfinches. The fruit is (correction) black twinberry, and I have seen robins, waxwings, Spotted Towhee and Swainson’s Thrush all enjoying this spring treat.
