Posted July 19, 2014 from Seattle WA We’re still tying up the loose ends from my beloved parents-in-law's passing, so we just got back from a trip to the land where they lived for 40 years in the New Mexico bootheel.  Getting there involves a 7 mile...

Posted from Seattle May 24, 2014 Brian Pendleton and I got back last night from our GREAT MIDWEST WARBLER SAFARI.  We landed in Chicago on May 16 and birded beginning Saturday May 17 through yesterday May 23 at 3 pm in Indiana.  No, make that 5...

Posted April 27, 2014 from Seattle, WA The songbirds are migrating north and our creek is becoming bath central.  We live on Beacon Hill, where except for the Cheasty Greenbelt, creeks are all piped away to the Westport Sewage plant. So we installed a 15 foot creek...

Posted Feb 23 2014 from Seattle   We said goodby to CD Littlefield and headed down canyon through the old gates to the ranch yesterday morning. We had 15 minutes to spare in Tucson near the airport and stopped at a drain-way/arroyo --that mercifully wasn’t concretized-- to...

Posted from Seattle Feb 2, 2014  We have to make a trip down to the ranch where Delia’s late dearly beloved parents spent their last 38 years.    Calling it a ranch may sound pretentious to some, as it is a conservation ranch with no livestock.  It’s in...

Posted July 20, 2013 from Seattle, WA  The Violet-green Swallow family living in a nestbox on our house has fledged three or more babies.  Here is the Mom at the box. Mom had no problem with me taking photographs.    I wanted to get a shot of...

Posted June 5, 2013 from Seattle, WA Butyl Creek is a 10 ft. recirculating creek in our backyard on residential Beacon Hill.  In Seattle all the creeks were sent underground to the Westport sewage station long ago, so birds, who all love and need to bathe,...

Posted from Seattle, WA May 9, 2013, after return last night from New Mexico and Arizona.   Last Saturday Carroll Dwayne (CD) Littlefield, Delia and I headed East over the pass to visit the old homestead of Shorty Miller.  Shorty was a Depression-era rustler, no relation to...

Posted April 29, 2013 from Seattle, WA. The Grays Harbor Shorebird Festival left me with such a good feeling about Grays Harbor, the Festival, the people and the shorebirds that after vending all day at the Festival I decided to postpone the trip back to Seattle...

Posted from Seattle on March 30, 2013 In recent years waiting for a Violet-green Swallow family to get settled at our house has been a bit tortuous.  Swallows dislike really bad weather even more than people do, and in miserable springs a male would show up...

Posted Jan. 28, 2013 from Seattle, WA  The 300 ml lense on my still camera broke in September so I began trying to use my Panasonic Camcorder for wildlife and landscape shots.  But on the Peloncillo, New Mexico 2012 Christmas Bird Count I was tripping the...

Posted August 10, 2012 from Seattle WA Delia and I got back from the southern “Bootheel” of  New Mexico earlier this evening.  We visited her Dad, and it was my first trip ever where it wasn’t to visit “Bob-and-Katie,” since her mom Katie passed away on...

Posted June 11, 2012 from Seattle, WA Delia and I traveled out to the Snoqualmie Valley yesterday and took about 16,000 steps at the Stillwater Wildlife Management Unit there.  (Delia wears a “pedophile” (Paul Dunn-from-the-Market’s joke, it's more accurately called a pedometer) and always knows how...

Posted  April 29, 2012 from Seattle, WA   Here on Beacon Hill, the first big wave of the Warbler migration hit on the 26th of April.  As usual the majority of birds are Yellow-rumped Warblers (one male shown scanning for danger before bathing) headed north and upward...

Posted April 12, 2012 from Seattle Our male Violet-green Swallow came to wait for a mate on March 28, a nice day in a cold stretch, and then again on April 5.  But either she came to him or he found her and brought her back...

Posted March 25, 2012 from Seattle, WA Delia and I went up to Two Rivers Wildlife Management Unit south of Monroe, WA yesterday and experienced moments of Two Rivers magic.   We got out of the car and were helpfully shown a Bittern in the slough by...

Posted March 18, 2012 from Seattle Not every venture into nature is equally divine.   Today Delia and I and our friend Sherry Lee visited the Nisqually Wildlife Refuge and saw lots of great sights but also some signs that some of the critters were as annoyed...

Posted March 11, 2012 from Beacon Hill, Seattle Every year it’s bound to happen to you if you’re a year-bird-lister,  It’s only a question of when:    That first trip of the year that doesn’t yield anything new for the year.   To be fair, going to Alki...

Posted Feb. 29, 2012 from Seattle An Anna’s Hummingbird is nesting in our backyard Italian Plum for at least the third year in a row.   We have no way of knowing if this is all the same individual.  Presuming it is, two years ago she raised...

Posted Jan 31, 2012 from Seattle. Delia and I started the month off and running with our year- bird list (see last post) but immediately fell off of our last-year’s pace.  We did however see this gorgeous Pileated Woodpecker at the Nisqually.  You should see the poses...

Posted Jan.9, 2012 from Seattle Delia’s and my BigYear is off to a great start—We passed 100 species for the country in the quickest time ever for us.  On New Year’s Day we left Di Ann's Mountain Valley Resort in Rodeo (We stayed there so we...
