Force Lake, etc.

I spent an hour this morning wandering around Force Lake and the road to Vanport Wetlands... Nothing new, but good stuff nonetheless...

There were tons of Western Wood-Pewees everywhere...


Starlings were loud as hell and trying to take over.


This slug was pretty rad:


A Song Sparrow seemed very interested in me.


The bird of the day was definitely the Cedar Waxwing.  There were a couple flying around very low next to the slough between Vanport and the racetrack.  When a guy came by with his adorable 6-month old mastiff they were still flying around near me.  I was stoked.



They are just SO cool-looking.   And lastly, a pretty little Anna's Hummingbird was zipping around the lake...


Good stuff... I hope to get out a lot this weekend with the weather FINALLY supposedly warming up!  The east coast has been complaining it's a 100 degrees while here it's been raining and 55...  Neither sounds very good to me!  Where's 70 degrees and sunny, huh???

  3. Amazing capture of the Anna's. I had about 50 waxwings flying around me on Plum Island on Saturday. One of my favs. I probably say that about 40 different birds though. :)
