It's been several months Since I've taken a bird walk with a group. Wednesday morning, my Mom and I went out to Delta Ponds with a small group of nine others.
We walked a path along the Willamette River.
Though a foggy morning, we saw a couple dozen different birds including this Pied-billed Grebe.
The Canada Geese were semi-hysterical...
...here's the reason why!
A Bald Eagle.
Here's a Bewick's Wren. We also saw Golden-crowned and Ruby-crowned Kinglets.
A young Nutria was having breakfast.
I got a good look at a Yellow-rumped Warbler.
There was a Kinglet flitting about too, but no photos of it.
and a Cormorant.
Several Anna's Hummingbirds including this male.
Here's a female Ring-necked Duck.
And here's the male.
My mom requested a 'new bird' - and these Wood Ducks were lifers for her.
We were serenaded by Song Sparrows and Blackbirds.
It was nice to explore a new area of the Willamette River and Delta Ponds. A large shopping mall and several office buildings lurk close by, but lots of birds go about their business not bothered by the proximity of civilization.
