Saw an osprey at Boeing Creek Park yesterday.  I've seen eagles there a few times but I don't recall seeing their smaller cousins previously.

What a great backyard bird to have, Joe.   Ever seen "My Life as a Turkey" ??  It's one of my favorite nature shows.  All of Joe Hutto's books are on my to-read list.

Some of the half grown mallard ducklings at Boeing Creek Park are CRAZY!  All the ducks there are habituated to people, not too shy, they get fed.  But this pair of little guys were so brazen about it.  Walked right up to me, point blank range, after getting bored of not getting handouts they started nibbling on my shoes and my shins (was wearing shorts).  That was a bit odd.  They're also jumpers.  I had no idea ducks could jump that well.  Extended my hand toward them to try to ward them off a bit, they just thought it was food coming in hot, started jumping at my hand.  Crazy little guys.  Everybody else was just chillin', must've had close to 20 ducks hanging out.  Some adults and babies of various different sizes/ages.

Snow geese have returned to Skagit valley.  Saw a few hundred in a field on Fir Island today.

I have been seeing quite a few Common Loons in the south Puget Sound in the last few weeks, mostly at Penrose Point State Park and Joemma Beach State Park.

Also, I have seen that Surf Scoters have been trickling in for the last month in the south Puget Sound.

Best part about driving to work is driving the roads of Fir Island. Geese are starting to show up, every season is a treat.

I was letting the Black Cat roam around outside this afternoon so he could do outside cat stuff, with plenty of supervision, of course. After 2 hours of letting him do his shenanigans (including deer hunting, galloping all over, and sniffing plants), I went to get him to put him back inside and couldnít figure out what he was looking at in a tree. It took me little bit, but finally found a Barred Owl intently watching the Black Cat. Told the Black Cat it was definitely time to go in.
