Powell Butte, March 2022 Nancy wrote about this outing in her blog, Rivers and Roads PDX. Here’s a gallery of my photos. (Click any image for a lightbox style slideshow of all the photos in this gallery.) This gem of an Anna’s Hummingbird was hanging out in the parking lot, before we even hit the trail.A Hairy Woodpecker working a fallen log.A stand of old (walnut?) trees along the edge of the meadow.An American Robin in the meadow, one of many that were out that day. Ah, Spring!Keeping an eye on the field, an American Kestrel. We followed this one around as it moved from one vantage point to the next. Later, on the other side of the park, we saw a pair working together.One of the working pair.The view from the top of the butte.This was just a flash of blue and white in the distance to us, moving between the field and this perch. Another birder, with better eyes and glass than we had, identified it as a Mountain Bluebird.This pond was where Nancy spotted …… this coyote.A Northern Flicker along the trail.We saw many Stellar’s Jays, mostly hanging out in the shadows in the more forested areas.Stellar’s Jay with a walnut shell.
