A few picture from local sites (Oregon, May 2011)

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.

Obsessed with birding, I started taking a pictures in '01 after a brief personalized intro by the incomparable David LaPuma. In July '09, I acquired a Canon EOS 50D with a 100-400mm IS lens to be able to shoot the fast-moving lbjs that were so difficult before. In Dec '14, I upgraded my body to a Canon 7D Mark II and immediately noticed a big improvement. Nevertheless, I'm first and foremost a birder, then a photographer.
