Eastwood Nature Trail

Matt Hunter, shown on the left, led this bird listening trip yesterday morning on the Eastwood Nature Trail.  Jeanette and I made the trip to Roseburg especially to take advantage of the opportunity to learn more bird songs from Matt who is beyond any birder we know in his knowledge of bird songs and behavior.  The Eastwood Nature Trail is located next to the Eastwood Elementary School. The trail and park, although completely unknown to us, is an outstanding area to enjoy walking and birding.

The group found Yellow-rumped Warblers too numerous and active to accurately count.

Matt idendified this early Western Kingbird by sound before we even left the parking lot and were close enough to see.

This Northern Rough-winged Swallow was hanging out with a pair of Violet-green Swallows.

The spotting of one Acorn Woodpecker led to the discovery of two more in the same tree.

This pair of Canada Geese high in a tree appear to be gawking at us.
