Here are photos from our trip to Rainier, OR and Sauvie Island yesterday. We were up and around Camp Wilkerson in Rainier and only spent about an hour on Sauvie Island. We hope you enjoy these.
A Gray Jay! This was a life list bird for us. This was our first birding trip to a higher elevation.
More Gray Jays
They were such fun birds to watch.
A Red Fox that we spotted on Sauvie Island.
Another one of the Harriers. Just off the road.
Just sitting and watching us watch him.
A Sandhill Crane in the same field as the harriers. We saw 6 Sandhills (including a juvenile) in all.
They were giving a lot of loud calls the closer I got but they didn't fly off.
And finally, a couple of pics from the back yard. Here are 2 chickadees but notice that one is a Black-Capped and the other is a Chestnut-Backed! We just thought that was pretty cool.
