Recent stuff.

So much birding, so little proof.  I'm going to see what I can dig up from the last week for you, but really there just haven't been a lot of photo ops.  And just to make sure you are not disappointed, let me clarify that there are absolutely NO RUSTIC BUNTINGS in this post.  I was 30 minutes late to that party. 

Mallard fight, Lake Sammamish parking lot (WA)

Eurasian Collared-Dove and Lesser Blue Wood Jay

Western Bluebird, Larch Mountain

FOY Warbling Vireo, Columbia Slough bike path

                      Dead Barn Owl, hanging in tree, Shillapoo Wildlife Area

FOY Western Kingbird, Shillapoo Wildlife Area

White-crowned X Golden-crowned Sparrow, Shillapoo Wildlife Area

Curious cows, Vancouver Lowlands (and yes, Jake made out with one or two of them)

Red-breasted Sapsucker, Mount Tabor

Wilson's Snipe, Airport Way

Robin and worm

That's pretty much it from recent outings.  I'm up to 106 for my motorless list and hope to add more next week once it stops raining so much.  Good times!!


  1. I have seen more dead Barn Owls than's weird.

    Good for Jake being open-minded, and you for loving him regardless of his life decisions.

  2. Sorry for the barn owl :( .. Love the cute sparrows and the Snipe.. The cows are cute too. Great photos, happy birding!

  3. My deepest condolences about RUBU. That's rough. That hybrid Zono is pretty rad though, I've never seen one.

  4. You did better than I....I got no photos for my trouble..I have to wonder what happened to the owl? Dang! Cute cow kisses.

  5. I'm glad you got the sapsucker shot, if not a bunting. It was fun to see you! Also, I am in awe of your motorless list.

  6. Love that hybrid sparrow! Good find!
