"Troutdale, Oregon ... May 11 and 12, 2012"
The Trip:    On Friday, May 11, went to look for the Black-throated Sparrow and the Northern Mockingbird which are now being seen near the Troutdale Airport area ... SUCCESS on both !!! ... nice sunny spring day ... on Saturday, May 12, went back mid-afternoon and sat at the Black-throated Sparrow spot, hoping to photograph him in different lighting ... success here too ... sat for a bit on Swigert Road and had nothing unusual ... got some images of a Savannah Sparrow ...

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.
