"Deschutes River, Oregon ... May 12, 2014"
The Trip:    Hot spring day ... went to the mouth of the Deschutes River to look for White-throated Swifts, Canyon Wrens, and Rock Wrens ... didn't see any of the target birds although we heard plenty of Canyon Wrens, making it a new Oregon State Bird !!!!!!! ... went to Heritage Landing Park (Wasco County, west side of the Deschutes) and the Deschutes River Park (Sherman County, east side of the Deschutes)... saw an American White Pelican at the mouth of the Deschutes - an uncommon bird for both Wasco and Sherman Counties ... also stop at Celilo Park.
