TNWR: Cassin's Vireo - Virginia Rail - Western Screech Owl

June 11, 2017  •  2 Comments

I spent a few hours this morning birding the Tualatin National Wildlife Refuge.  Highlights of my visit include good views of two Cassin's Vireo trading off incubation duties on a nest conveniently located just above the trail, close unobstructed views of an adult Virginia Rail with five chicks, and of course the perennial Western Screech Owl in the well-known cavity with at least one nestling.
