I got extraordinarily close to this Western Tanager at Emma Jones Nature Preserve in Hillsboro.
Swainson’s Thrushes have also been showing up at Emma Jones recently.
Often close, but mostly always on the move: The Black-capped Chickadee.
This singing Purple Finch was near Griggs, Linn Co.
A Lesser Goldfinch was at the Jenkins Estate near Farmington, OR.
Finally, 2 Vesper Sparrows were singing along Belts Rd in Linn Co.
