Description

The nest was located in a 40-acre stand of large second-growth Douglas Fir trees. There were a few Oregon White Oak and Bigleaf Maple trees along the edges of the stand, and scattered Hazel bushes throughout. The ground cover was mostly mosses, Sword Fern, and some Poison Oak. I found this nest exactly 62 years to the day after my father found a Swainson’s Thrush nest in an oak grove about three miles from this location.
