An Unknown Friend

Uploaded by: Doesiedoats

Tuesday February 18, 2014

Williams, OR (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: I found several possibilities on this one, but was not able to positively identify. I first thought I had a juvenile Spotted Towhee, but there isn't a red eye and even the youngsters have that classic feature. So, any ideas will be appreciated.

Thanks, Eileen!

Yes, I can take that. It was certainly one
of the possibilities. Having it confirmed
makes me feel better.

Don't know why I haven't noticed them before now.

About Doesiedoats

Doesiedoats

I’m a native Oregonian, born in Tillamook and reared in the greater Portland area. After working in the Bay Area in the semi-conductor industry as a Human Resources Representative, my husband and I retired in 1999, returned to Southern Oregon and settled in the Williams area. Photography interests started early on with a Kodak Box camera and later a Kodak 616 given to me by my father, a semi-professional photographer. After many years of film cameras, the advent of digital photography has expanded my interest in the hobby. My camera is the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100. The Pacifica Gardens property has become the preferred subject of my photography because of its natural beauty. I have captured all four seasons over the past twelve years. I’m pleased to be able to share some of those photos with my WU friends. Please visit my web site via the link below.************************************************
