Today, Michelle and I went out to Commonwealth Park in Beaverton. It was just supposed to be a quick stop, but we ended up being there for quite a while.
Among the variety of birds, were a juvenile Green Heron (who let us get really close) and a Horned Grebe!
So here are some photos from the trip and a few others from the yard.
Good birding to all.
Here is the gorgeous juvenile Green Heron! He has been one of the most elusive birds for us. We catch quick glimpses, but we have never been able to stare at him.
Here he is staring right back at us!
Such a cool looking bird!
Please don't ask how many photos we actually took of this little guy.
Showing off a bit for the camera.
A Horned Grebe. We've never found one at Commonwealth Lake before.
