A few sightings in Lake County, Oregon

Golden Eagle


Rock Wren

Birding in foreign places temporarily recreates the excitement of early birding experiences when everything is new and unknown, and I thoroughly enjoyed the "discoveries" of my recent week in Europe. But for me it also enhances the pleasure of coming home to familiar birds, so my Memorial Day outing to the high desert of south-central Oregon was very enjoyable. Rock Wrens, Canyon Wrens, Prairie Falcons, Golden Eagles, Brewer's Sparrows, Willets, White-throated Swifts, Black Terns... every birder who has a chance to visit Oregon should spend some time in Lake County exploring Fort Rock, Paulina Marsh, and Summer Lake.
