Posted from Seattle, WA November 14, 2022 We boarded a ferry on Friday morning early. A sister ship was headed our way under the southern peaks of the Olympics and this is what it looked like. You almost are forced to admit, the Northwest has some...

Posted from Seattle, WA , October 9 2022 Since the beginning of June the Cave Creek Ranch in Portal, Arizona has received 24 inches of rain. Here in Seattle we have received .03 inches, although the number may be higher we may have gotten some in...

posted May 15, 2022 from Seattle, WA For Delia and I going on a three-day birding trip with Brian and Darchelle is like those stories you hear now and then from the Plains states of people getting picked up by a Tornado and carried a long...

Posted from Seattle March 26, 2022 These Elk were just east of Seattle in the Snoqualmie Valley. As the day's light faded, they came racing out of the forest to socialize in a very large field, there were many. I did not realize that Elk bounded...

Posted from Seattle, WA on February 8, 2022 The Border Wall may live in infamy, but also in irony—a perfect example of why people should be skeptical of big government projects. We were down in extreme southwest Arizona at the San Bernardino Wildlife Refuge, one of...

Posted from Seattle WA on December 24, 2021   It's green and wet down here in Seattle (thankfully--my biggest fear is always drought) but Delia and I plus Brian Pendleton and Darchelle Worley are recently back from the Okanogan and the Waterville Plateau, where things had a...

Post begun on Nov. 5 2021 from Seattle, WA This is just to get this blog post going. A Downy Woodpecker was right by the road that sliced through a Cranberry Bog/Farm in Grayland back in October. Delia and I were down there looking for a...

Posted from Seattle, WA Sept. 20 2021   Delia and I just got back from the bootheel of New Mexico today, from a visit that was too short. Not all the news from the Southwest this year is bad. There was a monsoon, rather than the newly common...

Posted August 26, 2021 from Seattle, WA, a place where it never rains. Our friend Kathi in Bellevue sent us a shot she took from her kitchen window.  I allowed as it was pretty good, which would be true even if I myself had ever even...

Posted from Seattle August 1, 2021 Sometimes people say "This is a beautiful day." The comment is usually meant to mean sunny with blue sky, the absolute worst and most boring, unaesthetic conditions possible for photography or nature viewing. To use the latter worldview, we have...

Posted May 20, 2021 from the central Peloncillo Mtns, New Mexico We are down in the Bootheel again. Delia and I went over to Portal, Arizona on May 18th chasing birds and Nature. One of our last stops was Cave Creek Ranch, a beautiful birder's resort with a...

Posted May 1 2021 from Beacon Hill, Seattle, WA We had a nice migration fallout on Beacon Hill today, May 1st, by far the biggest pulse of the year so far. Mainly Yellow-rumped Warblers, but also including Wilson's Warblers, Orange-crowned Warblers, a MacGillivray's Warbler and a...

Posted from Seattle, WA on April 18, 2021 After a winter that featured above-normal precip and lower-than-average temps in key months, Seattle has become a blast furnace—well, maybe people around the country don’t consider temps in the high 70’s to be like a “blast furnace,” –but...

Posted from Seattle on March 6, 2021 This winter we have sauntered out to Granite Creek in hopes of seeing the White-winged Crossbill flock that seems to be stationed there but are not always easy to find-- We dipped on them thrice, but each time were...

Posted from Seattle, WA on Jan 23, 2021 I was worried and fretful about this trip to the BioResearch Ranch, which we knew would be in the middle of a severe drought that has settled over much of the west, with the Bootheel being among the...

Posted September 23, 2020 from Upper Post Office Canyon I didn't know Bears kissed so much! When our young dynamic researcher friends Emily and John suggested putting a game-cam at the wildlife tank just up-canyon from the house here, I thought, "Oh, that's nice, maybe they'll get some great...

Posted through smoke on sad anniversary day of September 11, 2020 Birds, especially the Neotropicals--the birds that migrate south to the Tropics every fall--love to take baths, regardless of the weather. But as smoke today descended on Butyl Creek (our 12-foot recirculating creek on Beacon Hill)...

Posted from the Central Peloncillo Mtns, New Mexico, May 19, 2020 Delia and I arrived late in Tucson, too late to bird the Airport Wash. But we noticed a sign of the times as we headed out: seven Javelinas headed out for a night on the town.  The...

Posted May 9, 2020 Hi all, Many of the Yellow-rumped and Orange-crowned Warblers seem to have already departed for points north or up. (Many Yellow-rumps high in the Cascades, Orange-crowneds as far north as the Brooks Range in Alaska.) The next wave has arrived, Here is one of...

Posted from Seattle, WA April 10 2020 Here is a male Yellow-rumped Warbler in Butyl Creek, April 11, 2020 This Wilson's Warbler, bathing on the Creek on April 27th, illustrates a pet peeve of wildlife artists. If you painted this bird in the pose shown, everybody,...
