Time to see what birds are hanging around Sequim.
We find a large flock of swans
I was very excited when I downloaded this photo. Not only do I have a nice collection of Trumpeter Swans and a Tundra Swan!
The swan to the right with the yellow near it's eye/bill is a Tundra Swan. Trumpeters have all-black bills, while most Tundras have a small yellow patch in front of the eye.
We were curious why some of the flock was grey. As I found out:
We find a Bald Eagle
A pair of Mourning Doves
A pair of bald eagles taking in the views
We make it over to the Nearshore and Estuarine as the sun is setting
Lots to investigate
We find a flock of Northern Pintail!
Off go the pintails. On the far right post is a Belted Kingfisher
Lots of small shorebirds
Gulls and Brants heading out for the night.
