We went to Commonwealth Park in Beaverton yesterday for a quick bird walk. The weather was pretty miserable, but the birding was awesome! We saw First of Year Osprey and Hutton's Vireo, as well as a ton of other birds. This is a great place to bird and is easy on the feet.
Hope you enjoy!

The Osprey then flew right over our heads, carrying the fish.
A Yellow-Rumped Warbler, Myrtle variety.
This Cedar Waxwing flew into the tree we were standing under. It was great to see it so close up.
