Cascade Mountains - Jackson County - Oregon - USA

"Mount McLoughlin is a steep-sided stratovolcano, or composite volcano, in the Cascade Range of southern Oregon and within the Sky Lakes Wilderness. It is one of the volcanic peaks in the Cascade Volcanic Arc, within the High Cascades sector. A prominent landmark for the Rogue River Valley, the mountain is north of Mount Shasta, and Crater Lake lies to the northwest. It was named around 1838 after John McLoughlin, a Chief Factor for the Hudson's Bay Company. McLouglin's prominence has made it a landmark to Native American populations for thousands of years... Mount McLoughlin reaches an elevation of 9,493 feet (2,893 m).[1][a] The tallest volcano in between Mount Shasta — located 70 miles (110 km) to the south[5] — and South Sister 120 miles (190 km) to the north"

Emigrant Lake - Jackson County - Oregon - USA

Habitat : Open Woodlands
Food : Insects
Nesting : Cavity
Behavior : Flycatching
Conservation : Low Concern

"In open parklands of the American West, brilliant blue-and-rust Western Bluebirds sit on low perches and swoop lightly to the ground to catch insects. Deep blue, rusty, and white, males are considerably brighter than the gray-brown, blue-tinged females. This small thrush nests in holes in trees or nest boxes and often gathers in small flocks outside of the breeding season to feed on insects or berries, giving their quiet, chortling calls. You can help out Western Bluebirds by placing nest boxes in your yard or park... Western Bluebirds have a gentle look, but territory battles can get heated. Rival males may grab each other’s legs, tumble to the ground, and then pin their opponent on the ground, stand over him, and jab at him with his bill."
- Cornell University Lab of Ornithology
