Pittock Mansion Macros

The rain has returned to Portland and it was a wet walk looking for birds today. I gave up, but on the way home the rain stopped so I visited Pittock Mansion and found the grounds looking lush...and...well, very Pacific Northwest.

It isn't unusual to find more birds in my backyard than out on walks. Turned out they were busy in the garden when I got home.

This male Downy Woodpecker was especially photogenic today.


  1. I actually said "oooh" at one point. Great photos! Beautiful.

  2. Great shots! I was actually planning to go up there this week to look for birds... Such a cool spot.
