Our President's Day Weekend began in Pacific City, where Sarah and I had been holed up for the week.
I could have spent the entire day at this refuge, but we had to return to reality in Portland. We're looking forward to our next wildlife refuge trip, however: a walk we are leading at Tualatin River NWR for Portland Audubon on Saturday.

On February 1st, 2003, Sarah and I went on our first birding trip together. We drove from Norman, Oklahoma to Sooner Lake, near Stillwater. We didn't find the Smith's Longspur I'd hoped for, but I think I impressed Sarah with my ability to identify Field Sparrows. Ten years later, we continue to chase birds in nice rural settings.
