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

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.
