A 3-day Portland Audubon trip to all-too-warm Wallowa Co nevertheless yielded a few good birds, and happy people!

The whole group got excellent looks at this Gyr along Elk Mountain Rd, about 1mi north of Repplinger.

This bird was at Wallowa Lake State Park.

Other goodies included 4 Pygmy-Owls, 1 Great Horned on the nest, Gray Jay, Clark’s Nutcracker, Ferruginous and Rough-legged Hawk, American Tree Sparrow, Common Redpoll, Gray-crowned Rosy-finch and Harris’s Sparrow.
