20 June 2012

I had unexpected success in the Fort Klamath region. In the 1980s I did not find many MacGillivray’s Warblers during my thesis research but this year I had found quite a few. They were limited to riparian habitat. Willows or brush along the road, usually near water.

I managed to take some better video of the Western Tanager male near Fort Klamath. I continued on to my next study site at the base of Mt. Hood. You can see Mt. Hood from miles away (see below) in the prairies of central Oregon. There is a large agriculture industry in this region with fruit being the primary commodity – see Mt. Hood from a pears orchard. There are also grape vineyards and wineries around Mt. Hood.
