Birds and bunny, weekend off to a great start

What a wonderful morning! I kicked off Memorial Day Weekend with an early morning visit to the Ship Harbor Interpretive Preserve near the state ferry terminal. Cooperative photo subjects included the familiar heron, hummingbird, loon and towhee, but I was also treated to rare sightings of a great egret (so far away!) and a skittish Virginia rail. At the edge of the wetland I found a pair of tiny bunnies devouring tender blades of grass. Lots of people out, too … more sunshine on the way!

About Photographer Steve Berentson

A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
