Hairy Woodpecker

May 2010 – Tillamook State Forest, Oregon

The larger cousin to the Downy Woodpecker is quite a bit more shy. I couldn’t get too close for this shot… I’ll hope for a better one some day.

Vesper Sparrow

May 2014 – Pueblo Mountains, Oregon
This is a pretty crummy/blurry photo of a Vesper Sparrow, but the only one I’ve managed up to this point… so up it goes! There are a number of sparrows common to this area. I didn’t see a whole lot of Vesper Sparrows, but they were obviously mixed-in.

June 2005 – Zigzag Mountain, OR

I heard this Hermit Warbler (and many others) for a long while before I could get a clear look. They were all in the top branches of the fir trees, which made spotting, identifying ¬†and photographing them pretty difficult. So, it’s not the best photo, but it’ll do.
