WA County Mountain Birding
Up on South Saddle Mountain you could barely make out Mt. Hood in the distance. We walked to the radio towers at the top which is 3516' according to the GPS. This is the view of east South Saddle Mountain:
But we were not discouraged and if anything we were motivated to get back out there with that GPS! Today we drove to Round Top Road west of Timber and made our way up the mountains. Before the sun was even up we heard a Northern Pygmy-Owl and saw a covey of Mountain Quail on the road.
The valley was fogged in and it was actually warmer up in the mountains than down lower.
Good birds, good weather, and always the best food and company!
