These photos come from recent trip to Sauvie Island. Photographer Tom Carey.

Some of the less obvious IDs: gull high in the water is short-billed (nee Mew); two gulls on roof–ring-billed to right, glaucous-winged to left; gray duck is female Common Merganser; buteo is dark morph red-tail. First bird below: petregrine.
