We went birding at Yoncalla Pond this morning where I got this shot of a Bushtit. He appears to be looking at me with a kind of attitude like, “you look’n at me?” There were several of them flittering around in the blackberry bushes, but I could not get a close enough look for a photo. We then tried calling them in closer with a recorded call on my iPod, and it was amazing how close in their curiosity brought them. This trip to Yoncalla was to check out a hunch I had based on a newspaper article I had read about the old logging pond being accessible after two decades of being closed to the public. Turns out it was a good hunch and we had an excellent birding experience. Look for more information in the near future.
