Jackson Bottom Walk

We took a walk over at Jackson Bottom Wetlands a short time ago. It was a gorgeous day and we saw 2 new Life List birds! Here are a few of the photos from the walk.

Sorry that I have not been posting any photos lately. We have just been extremely busy with work and home. We are still watching all of the birds, I just haven't made the time to blog about it. Hopefully, that will change soon. Thanks for stopping by!

An American Bittern! Life list bird!

A Green Heron! Another Life List bird! We tried to get a closer photo but he wasn't cooperating at all.

One of the many swallows at Jackson Bottom. It was warm that day and quite a few of the birds were panting.

We found a small flock of Cedar Waxwings towards the end of our walk. Such awesome birds!

I can never post just one photo of these guys.

Great Blog! I have been selling real estate in Bend Oregon since 1981 but just started birding a few years ago. We are lucky enough to have a nesting pair of Lewis's Woodpeckers in a nest box in our back yard. It was installed by Dean Hale of the East Cascades Bird Conservancy. Good birding!

Have you seen White Pelicans at Jackson Bottom?
On a tip from my son Peter, I went to Fernhill Wetlands this afternoon and saw a group of white pelicans.
I have pictures.
