Good news for birders and photographers!

It’s Autumn — that time of year that heralds the return of the migratory birds, including cranes, swans, ducks, and geese. The careful observer will also find a large, white-winged bird that is quite rare in Northwestern Oregon — white pelicans! It’s a photographer’s delight as hazy summer yields to clear and crisp autumn views of the snow-capped volcanic peaks and changing leaves, and as low-angled light casts an amber glow throughout lakes and fields.
