GOLDEN GATE AUDUBON GOES HOME HAPPY

The Golden Gate Audubon three-day visit to southwestern Oregon visited the Siskiyous, Cascades and Klamath Basin.  Result: 125 + species, lifers all around and plenty of great bird moments.

Red-breasted Nuthatches feeding nestlings on Mt. Ashland.  Over a dozen raptors in one kettle riding afternoon air currents over the ridges on the east side of Butte Valley. Yellow Warbler building the perfect nest at Rocky Point.  Black-headed Grosbeaks singing nearly everywhere it seemed.  White-faced Ibis in the sun.  North America’s smallest bird.  Here are a few of my favorite things:CHSP-HIDN (1280x960)Chipping Sparrow not quite hidden. DBL-CRAN2 (1280x960) laz1 MT-BLUU (1280x960)Williamson’s Sapsucker male. WM-SAP1 (1280x960) WM-SAP2 (1280x960) WM-SAP3 (1280x960) WM-SAP4 (1280x960)I took all these photos Saturday in the Cascades.
