EASTERN OREGON: MORE IMAGES
Here are Frank Sobotka’s images of places and people from our KBO trip to Malheur from Ashland.
Here are Frank’s shots of the birds we saw. A chipmunk and a dragonfly sneaked in as well.
Some of the highlights include great shot of flying Sharp-shinned Hawk from below, Black-billed Magpie in bright sun, Long-eared Owl, and a jumping Canyon Wren at Diamond Craters which is wonderful to behold–toes spread, legs parallel and stiff. The sapsucker near end of photos is a Red-naped near Benson Pond.
