Mt. Hood National Forest

Here are some photos from a recent scouting trip to Mt. Hood for my upcoming Portland Audubon class.


Timothy Lake, a good spot to look for migrant loons and grebes


Varied Thrush on the shore of Timothy Lake


Clear Lake is very low this time of year, but still attracts waterfowl.


Greater White-fronted Goose on the shore of Clear Lake


Nala, the Birding Dog, after adding Greater White-fronted Goose to her life list. She apologizes for chasing the goose into the lake, but she just couldn’t help it.


A burned section of forest near Cooper Spur on the northeastern part of the mountain. Burned forest is a magnet for woodpeckers.


A really bad photo of an American Three-toed Woodpecker in the burn


The giant gravel pile that is Mount Hood, above Timberline Lodge
