Some Encounters From The Last Few Weeks July 26 -Aug.13 2013

Ring-billed Gull-Iona Jetty

Barn Swallow Wilband Ponds

Huge Black Bear amid the Swallows close to Cascade Falls Mission.  I wish I could have been a little closer.

Gray Catbird Grant Narrows

Barn Swallows Wilband
Common Yellowthroat feeding Cowbird Grant Narrows.  Not a great picture but I think an interesting one.

Solitary Sandpiper Cheam

Dragonfly nymph Carcass.  It's called an exuviae (sometimes shortened to exuvia).  Thanks to Dick Cannings for that bit of info.


Male Belted Kingfisher-Wilband Ponds
One often sees an Eagle sitting upright in a tree or on a snag and I have enough pictures to prove it.  Because of that I almost passed by this one without stopping to capture it.

I am glad I decided to get a few pictures because it immediately started stretching and giving me some great poses.

  1. Len, another great blog entry. Really impressed by all of the shots, especially the first two, not easy to get birds close to the water like that in flight,
