BELATED POST FROM JANUARY 6TH BIRDING TRIP TO SKAGIT DELTA
The day dawned gray and rainy....socked in low cloud with heavy mist and 37 degrees....what better weather for a bird watching trip to the Skagit. Heavy mist all the way north for 50 miles...then like breaking through a wall the sky dried up...a hole in the soggy. So remember never don't go....you may regret it. I was only going to replace a group member Noelle who was home hosting Mr, Flubug. The birds showed up....as usual...Snow Geese, Swans, Eagles, Herons, Thousands of ducks of mostly unidentified species due to distance and lighting but Pintails were common. A lovely little Kestrel, 30 plus Bald Eagles and 2 Rough-legged Hawks and strangely 3 male Harriers....while photo conditions were not the best here are a few results..
