Yesterday I went on a bird walk with the East Cascades Audubon Society. It was a stunningly beautiful day for a walk and I got to see a lot of my familiar birds and one or two that I didn’t know I had seen before.
Osprey are migratory and will come to Oregon from April to September. There was a dramatic decline in Osprey in the 1970’s when the pesticide DDT was used. Since DDT was banned in 1972, the Osprey population has been steadily increasing.
