After looking at the photos again you have a sage thrasher. Now i am very interested in where the gate is located.

>> Hi, we saw this pale-brown bird perched on a fencepost at the Kiwa Trail parking area on the River S Unit drive, around noon today. It was not as big as a robin, seems to have (biggish) golden eyes, a fairly large darkish bill, white tips along tail feathers as it flew off. I got two not-so-great photos which I'll attach. If I remember how to do that! Maybe a young something? Any ideas? Thanks. Sandi Morey, NE Portland

Yikes. I do have photos but won't post them. I called the Ridgefield office and they explained that there is some occasional off-hours attempt at Nutria population control, although the evidence of that is supposed to be removed. Apparently they missed a few.
