"Dawson Creek Complex, Hillsboro, Oregon ... March 24, 2014"
The Trip:    Beautiful spring day ... went to North Plains, Oregon (off Oregon 26 near Banks, Oregon) to look for the first-year female Yellow-bellied Sapsucker which has been hanging out there ... SUCCESS !!!! ... headed then to the Dawson Creek Complex in Hillsboro to find the Rusty Blackbird which has been wintering over ... SUCCESS there too !!! ... vastly different in plumage than what we observed last fall.
