The last day of the month…already! and it was spookily quiet today, at least along the foreshore…I think some little Sharp Shin Hawk or something similar must have done a ‘fly by’ just before we went for our walk because everybody was hidden and not making a sound!

Green Wing Teal and Mallards

A lot of Green Wing Teal again today…I’d ‘guesstimate’ close to a hundred…some Mallard and just a few American Wigeon.

log bay

Quieter over at the log bay as well, still lots of Salmon in the bay


out on the flats it was a different story…somewhere between 300 and 400 Bald Eagles and probably into the thousands when you talk about gulls!

October 31, 2011

just a typical fall day when you look this direction…there was a wall of black behind us, but it did stay dry..

Juvenile Eagle on a post

This juvenile Bald Eagle was about the only bird in close although there were numbers of eagles and gulls flying around.

Northwest Crow

Something a little unusual was spotting these Northwestern Crows…there was a smaller bird with them as well but I couldn’t ID it…

Pine Siskens

I wanted to get this picture in…I’ve been mentioning the large flock of Pine Sisken hanging about the area….yesterday I took this picture of just a part of the flock in the top of one of the broad leaf Maple trees.  There are 100 in this picture.  I estimate the flock at 300 at least.

and now, because it is Halloween and this is my blog so I guess I can do what I want on it…


my daughter just sent me this photo of my grandchildren…I was pretty impressed with the creative display…and the littlest one is a crow…so I guess it all ties in.  Happy Halloween!!!
