A fall trip to Oregon’s Wallowas (09/29-30/2012)
Posted by birdmeister on October 2, 2012
It’s hard not to think twice about the drive when you are planing a Wallowas trip. Well, last weekend it happened and it was well worth it. And great fun!
Spruce Grouse is always very high on the list of target birds. 2 males were at McCully Creek.
Here’s the second male.
This Sage Thrasher was along Golf Course Rd. They are rare in Wallowa Co.
A huge kinglet flock at the Fish Hatchery in Enterprise offered great possibilities for a shot …
Also at the Fish Hatchery I ran into a cluster of at least 3 White-throated Sparrows. Here only a record shot …
Three vocal flocks of Gray Partridge were along Leap Lane north of Enterprise.
I also saw several Ruffed Grouse. This one was very close to the first Spruce Grouse.
