We took several bird walks while at Collier Memorial State Park. Yesterday’s walk up Spring Creek produced this photo of a Mountain Chickadee, a rarity for those of us that live west of the Cascades. I was actually able to add three birds to my Life List. Besides this Mountain Chickadee, we also saw a White-headed Woodpecker and in the evening walking along the Williamson River I saw a Fox Sparrow. We came back home to Elkton today ahead of the rains and with hopes to recover from our colds.
