    The snipes are back with my first of the season sightings. Three birds were at the spot off the #1 (far west) viewing platform where we see them most often. I could only manage to get two in any one photo.

    I haven't seen Dexter, my backyard male Anna's hummer, for quite some time. At least two other Anna's have been coming to the feeders on my back deck. I sat in a chair on my back deck Monday (11/6/17) afternoon and photographed two of them at one feeder.

    One appears to be a first year male.

    Monday afternoon (11/27/17) from my back deck. Two hummers were chasing each other. I suspect both were first year males encroaching on Dexter's territory.

    Hummer #1.

    I believe this is hummer #2 based on the lack of dark feathers under its chin compared to hummer #1.

    Wednesday morning (11/29/17) a backyard hummer was checking out the seed feeders that hang from my shed.

    I dropped by Sprague Pond at Mini Park in Lynnwood. With the leaves now off the tree, the green heron nest was visible.

    I went back to Sprague Pond Tuesday afternoon (12-5). You can find ducks there that don't stop at the Edmonds marsh or stay at the far south of the marsh where photographing them is difficult.

    Male ring-necked ducks splashing in the pond.

    Thursday morning (12/7) a Bonaparte's gull was flying back and forth past the fishing pier. This time of year I have to shoot with negative exposure compensation to keep from over exposing birds with white feathers.

    Thursday afternoon (12/8) two pairs of northern shovelers were swimming in the pond at Pine Ridge Park.

    The pond was dry this past summer. Now much of it is frozen over.

    I haven't had much luck catching any avian action the past few weeks. Here are some bird shots from Tuesday (12/12/17).

    A male kingfisher (Katy's mate Don from the marina?) was perched on a train signal below Sunset Ave. until a train rolled by.

    Like last year, a red-tailed hawk has been hanging out in the trees that border the east end of the marsh next to Sunset Ave./Hwy. 104. One to three red-tails typically spend the winter in Edmonds in the area of
    City Park/marsh/fish hatchery/Pt. Edwards.

    I thought the red berries in the background gave a holiday look to the junco perched on the handrail of the boardwalk at the marsh.

    A black-capped chickadee was digging into a pine tree in the Harbor Square parking lot.
