Birds of the Ashland - Medford area of Oregon

I saw some new and interesting birds when visiting my sister in Oregon. She lives in Medford and works in Ashland, and I stopped at Crater Lake National Park on the way there. I was also taken on a very nice birding outing led by the Klamath Bird Observatory.


I saw the Oak Titmouse for the first time.

The Scrub Jay are everywhere.

Here's a female Western Wood-pewee on her nest.

The Acorn Woodpecker looks like it is ready for a clown festival, with an oddly-patterned face.

This Black-backed Woodpecker was flaking off bark at Crater Lake National Park.

That's great that you got to see some new birds. And got some good photos to boot.
