Walk around the Pond

This morning Jeanette and I went to Roseburg to bird with the Umpqua Valley Audubon Society at the Stewart Wildlife Ponds.  One of the highlights was watching this mother Canada Goose take her babies down to the water’s edge for a drink and a little swim. The event, titled “Walk around the Pond”, was led by Matt Hunter a phenomenal birder who can identify an unbelievable number of birds just by sound. He pointed out birds that we would have missed altogether, with the result being I was able to add some new birds to my Douglas County List and my Life List.
