Beaverton Birds

Went birding in local park known as Commonwealth lake, amd then the adjacent park Foothills Park. Between the two of them I got 25 or so species. But the best ones were, Merlin perched on a conifer, and moving adound the back end of Commonwealth Lake. A mixed flock of kinglets, chickadees, nuthatches, and busthtits foraging in a section of trees at Foothills park. A lone Hermit Thrush in a tree at Foothills Park. A Brown Creeper among the mixed flock, working tree trunks. And Finally a Fox Sparrow, seen in the top of a bush. The Hermit Thrush was a new bird for that county for me.

Poor photos, but seen well enough to ID as thrush. Swainsons should not be here, and breast was that of a hermit thrush.
