Eagle Creek.

I took the dogs out to Eagle Creek this morning for some wandering in the rain.  I was psyched that there were still plenty of active birds, but not psyched that I could barely get any photos.  At the overlook I finally remembered I had downloaded the app "Autostitch" and made a panorama:


It's not perfect but it was only my second time using the app.  Pretty cool, I highly recommend it.  Also at the overlook were juncos, Chestnut-backed Chickadees, Western Tanagers, Townsend's Warblers, and Black-headed Grosbeaks.  But none of those jerks would pose for me so here are some Common Mergansers in the river instead:


Back at Eagle Creek I was hoping for Harlequins but never found any.  Did see one American Dipper...


Also along the creek were Steller's Jays and Wilson's Warblers...



I love walking around this area, even in the rain...  



Oh, one last thing... One of the trees along the creek had this tag on it:


What's the deal?  I tried a quick google search and only came up with places to buy more of these tags...  Tell me what you know!

Good times!!
