This afternoon, before our New Year's celebrations, we spent a couple of hours birding around Scappoose before tomorrow when the new year list begins. If we see again tomorrow what we saw today, I will be thrilled! The afternoon ended with 45 species in just two hours.
Some of the bird highlights included a rough-legged hawk, an American bittern, a pileated woodpecker, and a couple of Lincoln's sparrows. Here are some of the photo highlights:
