"Sandy River Delta, Troutdale, Oregon ... August 16, 2011"
The Trip:    Nice sunny summer day, temperatures in the low 80s ... went late-morning, early afternoon, just to walk around ... very quiet bird-wise ... main birds seen were Western Wood-Pewees, Starlings, and Robins.

Sandy River Delta:    The Sandy River meets the Columbia River at Troutdale, Oregon, forming a wide delta. Walking/bicycle paths and an open area dog park line both sides of the Sandy River. To see other birds photographed on various trips ... click here.
