Painted Hills V – Spray Wildlife

In early October I spent five days in the John Day country. On the third day of the trip I journeyed to the Sheep Rock Unit of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument.

But, in the early morning before leaving Spray, I went to the waterfront camping area on the John Day River. To my surprise, several pheasants and deer were enjoying the grass in an open field.

Rooster Pheasant – – – Is there a better looking and better tasting bird?

  2. Yes, I love the pheasant. Desktop background material for sure.
