    Birds of Edmonds, WA. 2019

    Thursday (3-21-19) a red-breasted nuthatch was pecking at one of the habitat stumps in my backyard. For a small bird it made a fairly loud pecking sound. It came up with something.

    Magnuson Park this Morning

    I sent a link to the photos to Bud Anderson, a local raptor expert who teaches classes on raptor ID. He ID-ed the bird as a "classic" juvenile red-tailed hawk. That makes the photos even better, as red-tailed hawks are very skittish and much more difficult to photograph than Cooper's hawks.

    Edmonds Eagles 2018-2019

    Saturday afternoon (3-16-19) my son and I were driving south on Sunset Ave. when we saw an eagle circling ahead of us over Woodway. We drove up Pine St. to look for it. It had landed on one of the sentry trees near the nest and was calling for its mate. The mate responded and flew up to...

    Edmonds Eagles 2018-2019

    Wednesday afternoon (3-13-19) I was following up on an eagle sighting by a friend when I spotted this sub adult perched in a tall fir on Hanna Park Rd., which is near Sunset Ave. I am guessing it is a third year bird.

    More shots, taken Sunday afternoon (3-10-19), of the foliage at the marsh that has been beaten down by this winter's snow, rain, and wind. It will be interesting to see if the foliage bounces back with super growth like it did last year.

    Birds of Edmonds, WA. 2019

    I dropped by the marsh Sunday afternoon (3-10-19) to see how Marsh March Madness 2019 is going. Wesley reminded me to tell everyone to come down and watch the marsh progress from winter to spring. A female downy woodpecker was in the trees bordering the marsh along the walkway between the #2...

    Birds of Edmonds, WA. 2019

    Varied thrush continue to hang out in my neighborhood. Their loud, distinctive trills can be heard in the morning after sunrise. One continues to lay claim to the ground level suet feeder in my back yard. I have seen it chase off another thrush and a junco. The varied thrush is hard to...

    Birds of Edmonds, WA. 2019

    The frenzied activity of crows at the far south side alerted me to the presence of a predator. In this case, it was a red-tailed hawk. Like the eagles, one of the sentinels of the marsh was surveying the proceedings, only from ground level. A black-capped chickadee was checking out...

    Birds of Edmonds, WA. 2019

    I dropped by the marsh Thursday afternoon (3-7-19) to see how preparations for Marsh March Madness 2019 were progressing. I was not alone, for the Pt. Edwards eagles watching the proceedings from their usual perch above the new condos at the top of Pine St. As official greeter, Wesley was...

    Harrier relaxing, Astounding Snow Geese

    My son and I passed the flock at that location earlier this winter while we were heading home. It was near sunset and I should have stopped for photos but we were in a hurry to get home.

    Harrier relaxing, Astounding Snow Geese

    Great shot of the snow geese. I recognize the location. It's now March and I need to get up there at least one more time before everyone flies their separate ways.
