The most common large animal has been White-tailed Deer. There are also Mule Deer and Elk in the area, but we've not seen either. We did see this doe with her twin fawns.
Speaking of families, we got here in time to see some waterfowl still with young. This Northern Pintail hen is leading a nice brood.
A Northern Shoveler had a brood that looked younger than the Pintails.
This little Kildeer chick was running around on a paved road. Not the best way to make it to adulthood!
There are a lot of coyotes here at Ladd Marsh. They are a major predator of the young birds.
We enjoy seeing Cliff Swallows in their unique mud nests.
With plenty of insects to eat, various swallows zoom around our site in the evenings. They make a very challenging photography subject.
Stay tuned for more bird, animals, and insects from Oregon.
