Couch Birding

I enjoy birding the most while walking trails out in the natural world, and I did that today with my good friend John West at the Spring Valley Access of the Willamette River Trail.  And we got a respectable list of birds including two FOY (first of the year) for Polk County for me, a Wilson's Warbler and a pair of Hairy Woodpeckers.  But the best photo I have for the day is this female Rufus Hummingbird, taken at 7:06 AM this morning while sitting on my living room couch!


  1. Be very careful when couch-birding, as couch-birding induced napping HAS been known to occur!

  2. Ha-Ha Larry, sounds like the voice experience?

    1. Ed Zackerly, my friend! Nothing, but NOTHING, beats a good nap!
