I have spent very little time outdoors this month, but here are a few nice birds from the past few weeks.
This Yellow-rumped Warbler was displaying his namesake near Ankeny NWR.
Northern Shrike, also at Ankeny.
This Lewis’s Woodpecker has spent the winter near Ankeny. It is unusual to find them west of the Cascade Crest. You have to love a green woodpecker with a red belly.
Portland’s recent “Snowpocalypse” was not appreciated by the local Anna’s Hummingbirds.
This White-throated Sparrow has spent much of the winter on our property, but I haven’t seen him since the big snow melted.
Mourning Dove at the feeder
This Downy Woodpecker has made several visits to the dead cedar outside our living room window.
