We are now back on the West side of the Cascades and enjoying all the greenery that has popped out while we were gone. Our motor home got a new battery installed yesterday at COTTAGE GROVE CHRYSLER DODGE JEEP RAM, and while that was happening, we took a walk next door through the Row River Nature Park. This is one of my favorite birding areas, and is always productive. We saw a good number of birds, but in addition to the normal everyday birds we saw several special ones, like a Pileated Woodpecker, a Bald Eagle, and our first Orange-crowned Warbler of the season. The most interesting sighting of the day was this nesting Canada Goose under which you should be able to spot an egg. Watching with binoculars, Jeanette was able to eventually count four eggs.
