Chipping Sparrow - Spizella passerinaUpper Applegate Road leaves Oregon Route 238 about 8 miles south from Jacksonville Oregon and continues to just past the California border above Applegate Lake. I traveled this day along this route until I reached the Applegate Dam and crossed over to explore some of the roads east of the lake on French Glen Road. One of the most productive places I found on this tour was a picnic grounds 3 miles below the dam.

Subjects include in this day’s set include American Robin, Black-Headed Grosbeak, Cassin’s Vireo, Chipping Sparrow, Red-Breasted Sapsucker and Western Tanager.
