In eastern Oregon, Malheur National Wildlife Refuge provides an ideal stopover for passerine migrants like this Western Wood-Pewee. (Photograph by participant Mona Gardner.)
A species we see on relatively few Field Guides tours, Sagebrush Sparrow is a bird of the Great Basin, where its subtle browns and grays blend well with the pale palette of its attractive steppe habitat. (Photo by participant Pete Peterman.)
Another subtly attractive species of the Great Basin, Sage Thrasher also blends in well but like Sagebrush Sparrow sometimes obligingly perches on bush tops. (Photo by participant Pete Peterman.)
