Gulls in Gray and White – at Coulon Park

For this week’s Sunday Stills Challenge, I thought of ‘seagulls’ and went to look for them yesterday at Coulon Park. It’s one of their favorite places – mine too – and it was a beautiful day for a walk. They were out in great… Continue Reading “Gulls in Gray and White – at Coulon Park”

One Spring Day in Winter – New Feeders, Happy Birds

One day earlier this week, the wind and rain had finally stopped, temperatures were in the 50’s and the sun was shining. Inside the house, our carpets were being cleaned so to stay out of the way I sat in the backyard to watch… Continue Reading “One Spring Day in Winter – New Feeders, Happy Birds”

Favorite Nature Shots from My Own Backyard – 2022

It’s awfully hard to pick “favorites” since I love to take pictures of the birds and the bees and there are literally hundreds (dare I say thousands?) to choose from! That said, I’ll start with a Northern Flicker drilling a hole in the snag… Continue Reading “Favorite Nature Shots from My Own Backyard – 2022”

Today in the Stream – a Ruby Crowned Kinglet and Anna’s Hummingbird

Home again, home again in the Pacific Northwest, and I’m already tending to the birds. Or shall I say Bob did the tending when he turned on the backyard stream and immediately this little bird dropped by. I had to look through my Peterson… Continue Reading “Today in the Stream – a Ruby Crowned Kinglet and Anna’s Hummingbird”

And now for the Eagles – a Walk at Lincoln Park

Yesterday I shared with you the hummingbirds in my backyard; today I’ll share the eagles – okay, the eagle – that I saw last week before the weather went south. It was one of those beautiful blue-sky days that we sometimes get in Seattle… Continue Reading “And now for the Eagles – a Walk at Lincoln Park”

Hummingbirds in the Snow

We had snow yesterday – enough to stick and be beautiful – and the temperatures continue to plummet. I love snow but worry about the hummingbirds. So last night I brought the feeders in and returned them this morning; by midday they were frozen… Continue Reading “Hummingbirds in the Snow”

Surprise Visitors at Coulon Park – Snowbirds!

This week at Coulon Park I found two visitors among the Canada Geese. I believe they’re Snow Geese, perhaps blown off course while heading south for the winter. Or maybe they decided to relocate to Renton where temperatures are (relatively) mild year-round. I’d never… Continue Reading “Surprise Visitors at Coulon Park – Snowbirds!”

My Beautiful Anna’s Hummingbirds

I’m still on DC time so I woke up early thinking of the hummingbirds. I went out in my robe and boots to bring in the frozen feeders, returning them outside an hour later. The hummingbirds came immediately and rewarded me by posing. I… Continue Reading “My Beautiful Anna’s Hummingbirds”

Back with the Birds of Oahu

It was just last month that we were in Oahu enjoying the sunshine, beaches, and swaying palm trees…. and yes, the birds! If you follow this blog, you’ll know that I’m an avid birdwatcher and I love birds of all colors, sizes and persuasions.… Continue Reading “Back with the Birds of Oahu”

The Gingko and the Chickadees on the Cedar River Trail

I went for a walk on the Cedar River Trail to see the Golden Gingko in glory. I gawked – like I did when I saw it the first time, years ago. I stopped to bask in its color and admire it from this… Continue Reading “The Gingko and the Chickadees on the Cedar River Trail”
