Kelley Point Park.

I took the dogs for a walk at Kelley Point Park this afternoon in between rain and hail storms.  At first things didn't seem too birdy, but I ended up seeing lots of cool stuff.  It was feeding time for some young House Finches...



Right next to the restroom were these pretty bleeding hearts:



A Western Wood-Pewee landed on a branch close to us and we checked each other out.


I had heard an Osprey calling and thought I saw it land in a tree nearby... I took a few steps and suddenly there he was right in front of us. 


He was having a nice afternoon fish snack. 


Yummy... One more shot of this fella:


A Red-breasted Sapsucker was flying from tree to tree along the Columbia, sometimes whizzing right over my head...


This last bird was also having a delicious afternoon snack...


Mmmmmmmmmmm worm ball!  Good times and good dogs!

  1. Those house finches are adorable. The robin's wormball? Not so much. She must have a bunch of kids to feed!
