There was a male Anna’s Hummingbird along the North Yamhill River this morning and a pair of Hooded Mergansers in a flooded oxbow of the lake at the south end of Wennerberg Park.  That’s in Carlton.  So far the only data in eBird is from checklists I’ve submitted in recent months.HOME PAIRD (1280x960) NOR YM RVR1The North Yamhill river is running high and muddy.  Its water is halfway up the trunks of young willows established in the riverbed during two summers of drought.
