    Wow, some amazing colors out there this fall. Thanks for sharing your beautiful pictures and knowledge, it was a pleasure to read and really brightened my day on a cold and foggy morning.



  • Gail Baker:

    Tanya, just love your fall color and observation photos. Especially taken by the 1st one, madrone is my favorite tree.
    I noted the huge clusters of madrone fruit this year along 30th Ave between I5 & Hilyard, Eugene.
    We did have the most amazing fall colors this year~ Gail

    Glad to cut the tree out for few personal reasons as well others to benefit from being removed. Good to see ya made up there some pretty amazing things to be found in that direction. =)

    I’m so happy to see this post. I’m headed to Deer Creek on Friday with my school, Columbine school of botanical studies. Cant wait to see these beauties.

    Your account of peeing to attract butterflies is exactly what got me this photo of California tortoiseshells (mostly) on a April day at the Middle Fork Applegate trailhead! This was in about 2008, I called them piddle puddlers, lol.
    I could not get groups of them to land in the sun where I needed them, so ….

    Hi Tanya, Thanks for a great report and beautiful photographs. Sorry I had to miss the trip. With all our recent rain, it looks like the wildflowers were really spectacular. Wanted to mention that last spring when I visited Staley Creek bridge, hiking a short distance upstream I spotted two beautiful Harlequin ducks swimming in a quiet section of the creek. Something else to watch for when you visit that site in the future. Also, small world it seems, as the guy you met while walking back from the bluff is Dave Shroeder who I’ve worked with as a regular volunteer at the FBP Native Plant Nursery. He told me he had a new border collie named Scout who apparently has a lot of energy! Sorry to hear the chorus frogs weren’t singing.

  • Susan Hebert:

    You are amazing! Thank you for this report.

  • Jeffrey Caldwell:

    Sometimes the pollinator population may be “lost” among huge fields of flowers — relatively — so many flowers, so few pollinators …
