1092 Feeding Frenzy

Ediz Hook Port Angeles, WA January 9, 2014 While visiting Ediz Hook (not Idiz Hook like on my photo) I saw a bunch of activity on the strait side of the hook and went to investigate. There was a feeding frenzy among gulls and cormorants. In the photo above you can see a cormorant with…

1091 Northern Harrier

  Carrie Blake Park Sequim, Washington January 9, 2014 I was busy checking out the pond at Carrie Blake when I saw my wife frantically making gestures towards a field next to the park. Upon investigation, this is what I found. In a situation like this I wish I was shooting with my 500mm, but…

1090 American Wigeons

Carrie Blake Park Sequim, Washington January 9, 2014 Photographing more than one bird at a time can be a challenge when it comes to focus and depth of field. Since these birds where about the same distance away, the sharpness that I wanted was achieved. This is a good photo showing the difference between male…

1088 Red-tailed Hawk

Schmuck Rd, Sequim, Washington January 8, 2014 We were doing our bird run which we do every time we stay a few days out at our vacation place in Sequim (actually my daughter’s). When we arrive in the winter it is 55 degrees in the house so we run in and turn up the heat…

1087 Double-crested Cormorant

East Cliff Drive Capitola, California October 26, 2013 I guess I got a little carried away this day. My wife and I were walking East Cliff Drive in Capitola, CA. There were tons of Brown Pelicans and Cormorants flying around due to the abundance of anchovies in the water this Fall. Several Double-crested Cormorants flew…

1086 Northern Shoveler

1085 Great Blue Heron & Canada Geese

Theler Wetlands Belfair, Washington January 4, 2014 It was a rather slow day at Theler today and I only got two keeper photos for the day. This one shows a variety of birds on the other side of the road as I was walking back on the new loop trail. Notice a male Mallard in…

1084 Marsh Wren

Theler Wetlands Belfair, Washington January 4, 2014 This was my first photo for 2014. As we began our walk we found this little guy in the marshy area at the beginning of the trail where we usually see Red-winged Blackbirds breeding in the Spring. Marsh Wrens are fairly common at Theler, but usually heard and…

1083 American Kestrel

Club Cascadas de Baja Cabo San Lucas, Mexico December 2, 2013 The second week down in Cabo we stayed in our own villa which has two lanais – one facing towards the inside of the resort with a lot of trees and the other facing the beach/ocean. We were sitting on the lanai enjoying the…
