Ankeny National Wildlife Refuge, Salem, Oregon
Under the influence of the real Sudafed (me, not Clint), we headed to bird Ankeny’s Pintail Marsh. I didn’t last too long because of my cold, but it was nice to get out.
After we put away the scope and were ready to head out, a bright lime-green bird flew in. We busted out the scope anew, and found a poor budgie perched on a log in the marsh. I’m not sure how long this little guys will last out there.
We saw lots of Long-billed Dowitchers, Greater Yellowlegs, and Pied-billed Grebes. Full list here: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48529561
Photos are not great. My camera performs very poorly in low light.
No new species.
