1050 Canada Goose

Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge Washington State January 11, 2012 Not a very great photo of a Canada Goose. Maybe I should have deep sixed this one. Oh well.

1049 Red-breasted Sapsucker

Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge Washington State January 11, 2012 In this set of 2 photos I first show you a quick photo I took of the Red-breasted Sapsucker. He didn’t stay around long. I was walking on the boardwalk out to two barns, or returning (what’s the diff), and found this bird close to the…

1048 Northern Pintail

Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge Washington State January 11, 2012 We occasionally see Northern Pintails at Nisqually as well as in Sequim. In my opinion, this is one of the most handsome ducks out there. I only got one photo on this outing.

1047 Mallard

Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge Washington State January 11, 2012 This is my last set of Mallards for the day. This time I feature the female as she displays a little bit of action.

1043 Bald Eagle

1042 Trumpeter Swan

Sequim, Washington January 3, 2012 Every winter we find the Trumpeter Swans in a different location in the Sequim farmlands. Sometimes they are close to the road, and sometimes not. Sequim is a small town at the foot of the Olympic Mountains. It lies between the foothills and the water – the Strait of Juan…

1041 Great Blue Heron

Three Crabs – Sequim, Washington January 3, 2012 One of my favorite spots to find birds in the Sequim area is Three Crabs. The restaurant is closed now, but I think the area will always be identified as Three Crabs. The road ends at the old restaurant building and the water. Just before you get…
