Been enjoying the aeronautics of the Swallow's living in my soffit, and a pretty orange rufous humming bird guarding his new feeders.

Wish I could identify the rest.

I've been hearing quail in the brush at Richmond Beach Park for several years but hadn't seen any.  Finally last weekend I saw one in the driveway of a house about halfway between Richmond Beach Park and Boeing Creek Park.  Male, had the bobby thing on its head.  Disappeared around the side of the house.

I have been hearing this strange sounding bird at my place out in Verlot and am curious as to what it could be. It makes a weird almost squawking sound, unfortunately I have not had a look at it/them. Any ideas?

Sounds likely, I found a dead hawk nearby recently.

It was a crow, didn't sound like one, but then they can mimic the sounds of other birds right?

Crows and ravens make all sorts of different sounds and calls. Heard a raven make a call that sounded like drops of water falling into water and right after that it made a call that sounded like a cat purring.

Fall is arriving E o' the crest. This morning I watched a pair of migrating Sharp-shinned Hawks getting harassed by a half dozen Black-billed Magpies.

Paddled down the Sky Sat. for a Humpy recon and lots of Canadian geese moving.  Probs. residents, but it sure is cool to have them come in right over your head and land...Some Chinookers jumping in the big pools too.  (Hatchery I would guess.)

I saw 4 quail scurrying into the thick brush right by the entrance to Richmond Beach Park today.  I knew they were there.

I hiked Dungeness Spit yesterday and saw some Common loons and a pair of Surf Scoters. Whenever I see these birds I know fall has arrived.

There are a bunch of what I presume to be Oregon juncos feeding in my back yard.  One of them had an almost entirely white body.  Darker head like the others, and a few brown feathers on the back and wings, but mostly white.  Not an off white or pale gray either.  Can honestly say I've never seen that before!

I've seen a leucistic crow a few blocks away several times.  Maybe there's something in the water here.
