June 20, 2011 from Seattle.  Updated August 10, 2011 Below is the beginning, if it works, of the upper right quadrant of the seventh and last Birding Trail Maps of Washington State.   This map will cover the trough of Western Washington from Pierce and Kitsap Counties...

Posted June 26, 2011 from Seattle, WA. Lake Sammamish State Park was teeming with birds and reproductive activity today, although Delia and I dipped on both our target birds. (an American  Redstart has been reported there and Red-eyed Vireos are always likely, plus we missed Green...

posted June 24, 2011; Seattle, WA It's good to see the painting represented on a computer screen--it really helps identify the flaws.  I think I need a lot more definition in the foliage of the Firs marching up the side of the cliff.  I still feel...

Posted June 22, 2011. When a Killdeer doesn’t want you to know where the nest is, it creates a distraction display and determinedly leads you somewhere—anywhere--else.  The Killdeer shown below was getting excited in the early stages of a distraction display at Spencer Island in Everett,WA last...

The Seattle Times is ambling in the right direction with its June 20 editorial “End Ethanol Support,” which commended Senators including both WA Senators Cantwell and Murray for a largely symbolic vote to end the $6 billion subsidy for ethanol and the tariff against imported...

Hi all, Update June 19, 2011; posted June 13, 2011 from Seattle, WA. I'm tired of finishing stuff. (The last thing I finished was Common Loon, which is up in the store under 11 x 14s and 8 x 10s.)  It's time to start a slew of...

Posted June 12, 2011 from Seattle, WA In a feature story by Marilyn Geewax, NPR's Morning Edition again covered the rising-price-of-food story while barely mentioning ethanol.   Geewax pegged the story on the weird weather that has diminished prospects for the US crop this year, quoting USDA economist...

Posted June 1: updated June 9, 2011 [caption id="attachment_854" align="alignleft" width="400"] Western Tanager, photo by Ed Newbold. Western Tanager is one of many North American birds that are to some degree dependent on shade coffee plantations.[/caption] Saving Birds like this has now become almost as easy as shooting...

Posted May 25, 2011 updated May 26 with Lazuli Bunting, et al sightings It’s a paradox of photography and Photoshop software that a gloomy spring can result in some very bright shots.  Delia and I have been birding around Washington state lately and we’ve had to retreat at...

May 8, 2011 Weather in Western Washington has been abnormally cold, windy and rainy and that has bottled up the bird migration.  The result to this casual observer seems to be that birds are seemingly trying to decide when to move on an almost individual basis. Our...

April 17, 2011, Seattle, WA. We just got back from a week in the bootheel of New Mexico, where we were visiting Delia’s folks. It was a change from Seattle, with hot and dry being words that come to mind.  This is looking at the Chiricahua Mountains...

March 30, 2011 updated March 31, 2011 This morning it was so windy and upleasant, I forgot to turn on Butyl Creek, our 8 ft. backyard artificial creek that Delia named for the Butyl it’s made out of. I didn’t even look in the backyard till 3:15...

March 26, 2011 Delia and I made a mid-afternoon visit to Lincoln Park today. This Hutton's Vireo was very accomodating, foraging very low and close and at one point bashing some poor insect to death before eating it. We met Brian and Susan Pendleton at the Park and that...

March 26, 2011 This is yesterday.  I looked early this morning and things seemed ok, so I went about my business hoping to take some shots in the afternoon. Then this afternoon I realized the nest was empty, and this was much to early for this to...

MaMarch 21, 2011 Scroll down this page to find shots of this Mom stoically sitting on the nest in a snowstorm. She sure likes having the creek running below her.  She's in the running water the minute I turn it on in the morning....

March 20, 2011 The Sandhill Crane Festival is this weekend in  Othello, WA. Featured Speakers will be Jack Nisbet and Ken Bevis Friday and Saturday respectively.  I don't know how booked up anything is.  Check the website at www.othellosandhillcranefestival.org  for availability of various tours. Thanks to the Othello...

March 16, 2011 With all the tragic things going on in the world, it's important that I don't sound like I'm complaining.  But it's been raining here in Seattle.  We're already over a normal March's total precip as we reach the halfway point of the month.  This...

Updated April 8, 2011 (first posted March 15, 2011 updated March 27, 2011) Common Nighthawks have traditionally found urban habitats very amenable. I thought I'd take the iconic Nighthawks painting by Hopper and use it for the background.  I just have to build the buildings up...

March 15, 2011.  In a previous post we described how our Ma Hummer has been through a snow storm and had to endure an exploring cat.  Since then there's been a big rainstorm and a freeze. And last night a windstorm came up that had the branch she is...
