October 6th 2014

Jen and I went to the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge today.


 It was about midday when we when so many of the birds and other animals were hiding. We did manage to see a few animals though.

Like this squirrel, going for a swim.....





I would have really liked to have a long lens.... sometimes 300mm isn't enough.... And who knew squirrels went swimming?!

We saw some birds:
Scrub Jay

Here is a Northern Red Breasted Sapsucker

We think that these are Red-shafted Northern Flickers.
This is a White Breasted Nuthatch. I am not sure if that is a rock he is carrying around.




and this little chicadee:


There was a fat Muskrat:



and a little Townsend's chipmunk:


And last but not least this little dragonfly:

Paddle-tailed Darner

Hope you have a great night!  Don't for get to comment! There are only 3 days left to enter the print give away!
