With all the cold and rain this week it’s been real depressing, and also not a good week for bird watching. But looking back on the week, I guess we were pretty busy. The main effort of our volunteer position this week was delivering volunteer support items to various Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife sites. To that end we delivered stuff to the South Santiam Fish Hatchery out of Sweet Home, the Springfield Field Office in Springfield, and the Fern Ridge Wildlife Area east of Eugene where this photo was taken. We took a break after delivering to check out the birding possibilities. It’s now high on our list for a return trip. Later in the week we also delivered to the Salmon River Fish Hatchery near Lincoln City, and to the Umpqua District Office in Roseburg.
