"Troutdale, Oregon ... July 2, 2017"
The Trip:    Went out just to enjoy the gorgeous summer day ... hopeing to find a Lazuli Bunting ... SUCCESS !!! ... found a pair along Sundial Road. Swigert Road, BTW, is now a construction site for industry.

Troutdale:    Troutdale is located along the western bank of the Sandy River where it merges into the Columbia, approximately 15 miles east of Portland and Vancouver. This is a drier, flat area right before the Columbia River Gorge begins and is a good place for migrating birds to stop and rest on their way up the Gorge to eastern Oregon and Washington.
