Wild in Oregon
Now Playing: birdwatching in my backyard
Topic: Other Hobbies
There is a certain fascination with birds, and I watch for different ones wherever I go. Around my own area I log in my copy of Familiar Birds of the Northwest (Harry B Nehls) with the date, location, and something about their activities. I log each bird only once - the first sighting.
We have just over 2 1/3 acres of countryside with a creek, scrub, conifers, fruit trees, pasture, some hardwoods, and 200 feet of the Oregon Trail. On this property, since moving here in 1989, I have observed (*most common marked by stars):
*Great Blue Heron
More wildlife tomorrow!
