Birds make my day

My walks/hikes always find me scanning for birds, high and low. This representation of three outings includes an osprey, bald eagle, house finch, red wing blackbird and sandpiper.

Bald eagle offers 2022 greeting

I was pleased on many fronts with my visit this afternoon to Rosario. The vast majority of the snow was gone, the sun was shining and the temperature moderate. Icing on the cake was my first eagle shot of 2022. From Rosario Head.

Dunes area photo album

It is an extraordinary neighborhood: the dunes area between the ocean and lake at Deception Pass State Park. This area is located south of the West Beach restrooms. Surf on one side, fresh lake water on the other.

Bright Fidalgo morning

The rewards stacked up quickly on my Wednesday morning walk, a morning featuring perfect light! Before I had returned to the car I had experienced sightings of a bunny, two eagles, multiple blue herons, red-winged blackbirds, American wigeons, mallards and a hummingbird. There were also brief encounters with a couple of old friends of the […]

‘Fidalgo Holds Our Hearts’

Tomorrow, December 21, is the first day of winter. I celebrated “Winter’s Eve” with a rain-free walk at the Ship Harbor Interpretive Preserve (SHIP). I enjoyed sightings of an eagle, herons, wigeons, wrens and ducks. The message from Don & Reanne Hemingway Douglas on a small, water-filled plaque captured my sentiments: “Fidalgo Island Holds Our […]

Misty morning in paradise

As it turns out, the sun burned through early morning fog to present yet another beautiful fall day on Fidalgo Island. That does not mean my early Saturday walk was without rewards.

North Basin, Cap Sante Marina

Always beautiful, particularly so on a summer morning like today: the North Basin at Cap Sante Marina. The popular Rotary Park paved path runs along the base of Cap Sante to a gazebo near the marina breakwater. There is also a nice stretch of public beach.

Eagle perches at Canoe Pass

It was 2013 when I glanced to the south cliff of Fidalgo Island from Canoe Pass Bridge and spotted this eagle. I have never seen an eagle on that snag since, so I am pleased to have this image in my archives.

Deception Pass respite

Rather than subjecting myself to more news about the coronavirus pandemic I chose today to visit Deception Pass State Park. Fresh air, natural beauty and safe space between me and those who chose the same outdoor adventure. Not escape, but a welcome respite.

Rare sighting

On my many trips to and from Whidbey Island over the years, I have only seen an eagle on this Fidalgo Island snag on two or three occasions. On this day in 2013 I was fortunate to find a parking spot and get to Canoe Pass Bridge in time to take a few shots.
