Later that afternoon from Sunset Ave. The first time I have seen Brant perched on the tethered log at the underwater dive park at Brackett's Landing North.

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 photograph because it is very very skittish. I took these photos Friday (3-8-19) through the glass of the sliding door on my back deck. The thrush took off as soon as I opened the door for some better photos. The white blur at the bottom of the photos is the deck rail.

PSA for the photographers in the audience: Be sure to adjust the time setting in your cameras for the change to daylight saving time.

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 and #3 viewing platforms.

A small flock of bushtits was feeding in the trees around the #3 viewing platform.

A small flock of Canada geese flew from somewhere northeast of the marsh to the pond on the Unocal property just south of Willow Creek. I looked for the greater white-fronted goose that has been hanging out with the flock I saw grazing at the Frances Anderson play field. I did not see the goose while I was taking photos, but found it after I had uploaded the photos to my computer at home. Another example of my "shoot first and ask questions later" philosophy paying off.

Tuesday afternoon (3-12-19) I took a break from Marsh March Madness 2019 to photograph some backyard birds after my son and I refilled the seed feeders.

Still more Marsh March Madness from Saturday (3-16-19) afternoon.

A beautiful light morph red-tailed hawk soared over the marsh and Pt. Edwards.

The first time I have seen Wesley perched on the old martin gourd holder.
