Since our life hit the brakes and had to readjust last summer, we’ve haven’t had done any birding or anything to get out….too busy trying to get it back together. Going by our birding list, exactly 6 months since we listed anything. =(
We made a point to get out today and explore a different part area that we are now living in. It was also the 1st time I’ve been in our Jeep Wrangler since we brought the Pontiac…..felt good to be back in the Wrangler. =)
We checked out Camano Island and Cama Beach State Parks. Very happy that we stopped at the visitor’s center at Cama Beach. The staff member there was very helpful on giving us advice on where birders have been going.
We ended up in a wetlands area by a river and got to see our first short-ear owl and northern harrier! They were putting on a show. =) We saw at least 3 owls just flying around and 2-3 norther harriers. We even got to see an immature bald eagle, the head was almost finished changing to white.
It felt totally great to get out and do one of our favorite things. And the weather worked with us……no rain. =)
Hubby is working on the pictures now. I’ll post when done.
