I continue to not see a lot of birds here in Richland, though I haven't exactly been out and about much to look for them. Too busy painting and sketching, and hanging with Truman. So I'll just post the two species that I see in my mother's neighborhood: Eurasian Collared Doves (which seem to outnumber the crows by about 100 to 1) and California Quail.
These doves have taken over the Tri-Cities in recent years. It was just 2012 when I saw my very first one, ever. Now you can't walk a block without hearing or seeing one.
You don't see the quail as often -- more often you only hear them scurrying or fluttering away. However, my mother's next-door neighbor puts out food for them, so I was able to get photos as they chowed down.
This squirrel also found the handouts enticing.
Finally, a random photo of Truman at the park by the Columbia River:
