Still catching up from the bird photography tour of Central Oregon -- Malheur National Wildlfie Refuge -- Cabin Lake Photography Workshop. Here are eight new birds for this year.
It's always fun to see the White-headed Woodpecker. Black, white and the male red patch ont he back of the head, a cool looking bird.
Green-tailed Towhees are one of my favorite birds, rusty-red flared caps, olive green sides, white throats, and a little challenging to find. They're like little punk rock stars!
About to take off from its perch for the water feature below it, this Chipping Sparrow looks like it's cupped in a pair of hands.
There were more Brewer's Sparrows than Vespers in this area, but it was the first time I could tell them apart without going by vocalization/singing. The Vesper Sparrow is larger, has a rusty patch on the shoulder , and more streaked on the breast, and looks chuckier (maybe not a technical description, but it just looks that way to me).
If you're intrested - this brings the year total to 110 photographed species.
