An evening at Johnson Rd (05/06/10, near Vernonia, OR)

This evening I ventured out to Johnson Rd after work. Lots of birds and great looks.

Lots of Black-throated Grays everywhere.

This Gray Jay was very interested in my Pygmy-Owl imitation.

A few of these spectacular birds were at various locations. The grove at the end of the road is the easiest (lowest) breeding location of Hermit Warbler that I am aware of – great for a picture.

Another fresh arrival is this House Wren.

One of the easiest warbler to see and hard is the Orange-crowned Warbler. No orange crown visible on this bird.

I bet you don’t have a picture of a Purple Finch with a fruit across its bill. :-)
