Beautiful male Wheatear on the edge of the English channel 🌊 These birds have just started arriving from central Africa to breed in the UK and travel up to 2000 miles to do so. One of the longest migratory paths of such a small bird 🗺

Here is Portland’s most well-known Rough-legged Hawk, hanging out on the PDX airport fence per usual. Long story short, this bird was injured in Alaska, flown to @cascadesraptorcenter to finish recovering, showed up at this spot about a year ago, was seen here during much of last summer, and recently returned. Also, if you try to take its photo then it will stare you down till you stop.

Little loon, big loon. This 1st winter Red-throated Loon appears to adore his bigger cousin, the winter-plumaged Common Loon - and follows him around faithfully on the Columbia River in Portland. I have never seen this behavior in the coastal estuaries. #everybodyneedsafriend #redthroatedloon #commonloon #loon #broughtonbeach #birdsofportland #birdsofinstagram #loonsofinstagram #birdsoforegon #portlandbirds

Just started hearing the Yellow-rumped Warblers (aka Butterbutts for their bright yellow rumps) singing again! Time to brush up on all the warbler songs as new warblers and other songsters will arrive soon! If you are new to bird song identification, I highly recommend the free morning bird song walks with the Audubon Society of Portland. #yellowrumpedwarbler #butterbutt #warbler #birdsong #audubonsocietyofportland #birdsofportland #portlandbirds #birdsoforegon #birdsofinstagram #pnwbirds

So happy to be seeing Say’s Phoebes in the Portland area again. They pop up near watering holes during a short period every spring and this is a great year. Easier to find if you listen for their soft downward-slurred call. That orange belly! #saysphoebe #flycatcher #springmigration #birdsofportland #portlandbirds #birdsoforegon #birdsofinstagram #pnwbirds #flycatchersofinstagram

Red-breasted sapsucker in the licorice fern, after rattling our eavestrough senselessly. Good morning to you too. #redbreastedsapsucker #portlandbirds

Also in the local patch meadow in Portland was a flock of Western Meadowlarks! Seeing these beautiful birds and hearing them sing in the inner city speaks volumes about the natural habitats that Portland is trying to preserve and maintain. In fact, some folks were planting wildflowers in the meadow while we were visiting. I remember when this plot of land was a sanitary landfill and the city wanted to fill in the wetland for industrial use but eventually changed course due to pressure from residents. #westernmeadowlark #meadowlark #oaksbottomwildliferefuge #urbannature #urbanwildlife #portlandparks #wetlandpreservation #thisplaceusedtobealandfill #birdsofportland #birdsoforegon #birdsofinstagram #portlandbirds

Woo-hoo! A flock of Western Bluebirds has been visiting my favorite local Portland birding patch for a few days. #westernbluebird #bluebird #patchbirding #localbirds #oaksbottomwildliferefuge #seasonalsurprise #birdsofspring #birdsoforegon #birdsofportland #portlandbirds #birdsofinstagram #pnwbirds

It looks like we had some early morning visitors! At least three different bird species appear to have stopped by this morning for breakfast. #portland #nwportland #willametteriver #birdwatching #portlandfauna #portlandbirds #birdsofportland #portlandweather

Do you ever get bored of the common song sparrow? I don’t. Here’s one with half a white face. I thought I discovered a new species for a second there. #songsparrow #emberizidae #pdxbirds #portlandbirds #birdsofinstagram

Turns out these are both male pileateds based on red cheek stripes. Thanks @cornellbirds! So bill waving dance more of a territorial thing? Not courting like I suggested in earlier post. Or maybe they are practicing for the big day. Still awesome to watch. #pileatedwoodpecker #woodpecker #ornithology #birdsofinstagram #portlandbirds #pdxbirds #portlandaudubon

Yesss! After years of watching and waiting, a pair of cedar waxwings stopped by our backyard this morning. We watched as one yoinked the last berry off our mountain ash tree. Now we feel more legit selling this print, which was originally conceived for @audubonsociety magazine. #cedarwaxwing #birdnerdalert

I got a new friend!! Winston
