Photography: A Few Osprey & A Barn…………

Birds 1 SwittersBWe decided to venture away from the demands of life today and check out a few places I had previously made mental notes to visit. First, there was a large nest atop pilings out in the Columbia River. My 300mm lens was not adequate for as close as I could get toward the birds. But, this cropped image gives you the idea.

From the Columbia River, we ventured south toward Wilsonville, Oregon. Along the I-5 Corridor is an old, rustic barn tucked amidst commercial/industrial development. For many years, I have viewed this barn as I drove southbound and always said, ‘Someday I need to stop and photograph that barn.’ I figured out how to access the road closest to the barn. I noted it was on Boones Ferry Road. A common name in the area, I wondered aloud for the first time ‘Who was Boone?’ Who knew…I had never previously thought to ask myself….very fascinating.

We found the ‘old’ barn (I have no historical data on the barn at this time) and I took what seemed interesting shots to me. I hope you enjoy them.

On the way back North we stopped for another barn I had recently noticed to the South of Canby, Oregon. I took some photos there, for another day.

Osprey Migration…Did You Know?

Osprey (Chesser Decoys)

Was reading some enquiry at Oregon Live about Osprey taking a fish from a fisher on the McKenzie R. As the article notes, it is not unusual to see an Osprey swoop down for fish on a lake…but, even then they don’t usually take the fish from the angler. Now, as I have written before…those damn pesky Loons in B.C. are freakishly conspiratorial in seizing your catch on a lake.

However, what the article did mention, which I had never considered, was the migration of Osprey south during the Winter. Where did I think they hung out? Never thought of it.

Well, those amazing predators do migrate. And, they set down far to the South. Who knew? Well, I didn’t think about it.
