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.)

Near the parking lot we had some good songbird action, –this super-handsome Spotted Towhee stepped into the sunlight, plus there was a flock of Purple Finch, Hermit Thrush, a colorful British Columbian interior race of Fox Sparrow, plus a Yellow-rumped Warbler, both Chickadees and both Kinglets.

The male Hooded Mergansers were in the creek, the females were out in the lake. There was a Greater White-fronted Goose with the Wigeons, Mallards and Canada Geese also.

This Great Blue Herons was by the Creek. This bird had lots of black trim. I’ll have to look that up in Sibley.

Both of the regularly-seen accipiter species put in a showing today, and more surprisingly, they both struck similar poses for easy website-comparison. A juvenile Coopers Hawk above, an adult Sharp-shinned Hawk below. Note the round head and square tail on the Sharpy.

This female Belted Kingfisher was making plenty of noise all day. What would we do without Kingfishers? Still, we were glad we didn’t have to make a living diving into that cold water. We went home before sundown and turned up the heat.
