More Beaverton Birding

Here are some more photos of Beaverton birds! Most of these were taken at Commonwealth Lake. Click here for more info on the Park. We hope you enjoy the photos.

Red-Winged Blackbirds were everywhere! Singing their songs and choosing nesting areas. I easily counted over 300 of them.


They were very willing to pose for some photos, too.


An American Wigeon. There were about 300 of this species as well.


Beaverton has lots o' Towhees! Such great looking birds.


You just gotta love the Song Sparrows.


This is about as close as I've ever been to a Red-Tailed Hawk. He was sitting in a tree about 20ft above my head.


There were at least 4 of the Red-Tailed over the park all day long.


This guy was sitting as little higher than 20ft, but I still had to take the photo.


A pair of Red-Tailed Hawks just cruising along the thermals.


A Cooper's decided that the Red-Tailed can't have all the fun.


This Downy Woodpecker was such a ham! He let me get within about 3ft to take his photo.


There was one lone Pied-Billed Grebe at the pond.


If you look closely, you can see a female Red-Winged Blackbird on the right, a Scrub-Jay in the middle and a Robin on the left.


This was a brave little Fox Sparrow. He just hopped around the leaves as I walked around and took photos.

What a great day of birding! I look forward to milder temperatures here in New York State so I can get out and see what's out there.
