Saturday was a glorious day and the first place I went was Fir Island to look for the Snow Geese. I had no trouble finding them and was lucky to be able to photograph the flock in front ofMount Baker. I was able to observe several thousand flying in front of the mountain. I then headed north to the Samish Flats and did not find either the reported Gyrfalcon or the Prarie Falcon but found a very cooperative Bald Eagle. I then headed back to Fir Island, to check out Rawlins Road and was treated to several short-eared owls and northern harriers doing some territorial hunting. Here are a few of the images I made.
I live in both Seattle, WA and Rockaway Beach, OR in the United States. I'm an avid photographer with an interest in pet photography, landscapes, birds (master birder), infrared photography and other things that strike my fancy. I have a streak of being a photography "geek". I'm looking to try my hand at blogging so if you enjoy this blog send some encouragement.
