Photos: The Quest for Birds

I went to the bird sanctuary which is a short drive from Portland.

I had a great talk with DJ along the way – a really good one.

We arrived to find it was bird-fest weekend.  We followed the signs, and……

it was closed……victim of the government shutdown.

I didn’t even think about the fact it was a FEDERAL bird sanctuary.

We followed signs, turned around, followed more signs, turned around and followed more signs. Only to find our way to a place where they were looking at water fowl. I was looking for cranes.  Clearly the cranes were hiding at the federal bird sanctuary.  So here were the shots I took.  I had the best zoom I own which isn’t a great one but it’s ok.

Hopefully the political bullshit will end so I can go see the cranes before they head south.  Fingers crossed.

What do you think?
