"Troutdale, Oregon ... April 5, 2013"
The Trip:    Headed out in the overcast and drizzle to see if the Brewer's Sparrow (which had been spotted yesterday) was still there ... no luck ... took the Canon "superzoom" SX50HS out for a spin ... did an ok job on the gray day.

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.
