27 Mar Lincoln Park wasn’t entirely rainy today
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 was fortuitous. Brian spotted this Bald Eagle consuming a large fish, maybe a salmonid. It was at eye level right by the path. Yet I had missed it. I’m thinking a three or four-year old, but maybe Bald Eagle experts could set me straight. Brian also spotted a female Pileated Woodpecker a crest that was luminously scarlet in the March light.
The Southworth Ferry made a classic NW scene in the rain and mist.
