Audubon Society of Portland

Black-headed Grosbeak

Last Sunday we visited the Audubon Society of Portland on a somewhat rainy day. Their headquarters is located just outside the city within Forest Park, the largest urban forest reserve in the US. It's a really nice building with a large nature store, many displays, a rehab facility, and feeders! We spent a lot of time watching the feeders there. Here are some of the highlights:


Anna's Hummingbird


Rufous Hummingbird


Dark-eyed Junco


Douglas Squirrel

Nice shots! Especially that grosbeak. But when do we get to see a Clark's Nutcracker?

I guess I could post photos from my Colorado trip of 2006... no Nutcracker for me. We went high and low and everywhere in between. I think they occur further south from where we were. At least, that's my excuse.

Cool pics! I would be lost out west with all those different birds. I'm barely getting a handle on eastern birds as it is!
