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 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...

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...

We headed down to the Nisqually Wildlife Refuge today.  The air was fresh and the light was spectacular down there. This American Bittern wasn't far from the Visitor's Center.  We noticed that when it saw fish, it got excited and started wiggling it's butt like a cat.  It...

Hi all,  This handsome Red-breasted Sapsucker showed up in our yard today.  And, by the way, Mom Anna's Hummingbird has survived the snow, wind, cold weather and all predators and is still awaiting the hatchlings. (We live on Beacon Hill in Seattle, WA. We don't...

We have an Anna’s Hummingbird nesting in our Italian Plum outside our bedroom window.  She’s about 3 feet across the tree from where she successfully nested last year.  This year it’s a string of indignities.  Here she sees a cat walking under the tree.  You can...

I arrived in Seattle in 1976 and late that winter in ‘77 I saw a juvenile Golden Eagle with a clear white subterminal band on the tail perched on driftwood in the Skagit Wildlife Recreation area marsh near Conway, WA.  Today Delia and I went...

Delia and I and a friend went out to the Snoqualmie Valley to the Stillwater Wildlife Management Area to see if we could add to our state-bird-year-list today. Turns out, we couldn’t.  Our list is at 92, a mid-Feb total that's paltry by serious WA Bird-lister...

  Delia and I were back in New Mexico’s southern “bootheel” yet again for the holidays.  Things were calm down there, perhaps overly so weatherwise.  This weather system shown assaulting the cliffs on the north side of the canyon was only good for ¼ inch of...

Posting from Seattle Oct. 28, 2010 Delia and I made another trip back to visit her folks Bob & Katie who live in New Mexico's southwestern "Bootheel." I took this shot on the way there--out the window as we were speeding along through Arizona on I-10.

There's been a pond on the far end of Bob & Katie's property, the "Section Pasture Pond," but on the last two Christmas Bird Counts it's been dry, looking like this. Before this it had
Lake Sammamish State Park: pretty in the unseasonable cold --Nov. 20 2010 Delia & I went over to Lake Samammish State Park today for a quick 14,000 steps in the cold weather today (Delia has taken to wearing a pedometer everywhere lately.)
(Nov. 22, 2010 Seattle got slammed today) Our Anna's Hummingbird spent the day guarding the feeder in the backyard. The yellow behind him is a birch tree whose leaves have turned.

Nov. 13, 2010 This male Anna's Hummingbird was preening in the backyard for a while while another was foraging. They sure seem to be spending alot more time at the feeder now that nature is winding down for winter....
