Epic bird watching in Sequim, WA from our trip in June. Suza’s sharp eyes are hard at work. Note the stack of field guides, copious amount of snacks, plentiful beer, and a beach battered Domino holding down the couch. The study session continues this evening here in Seattle. Working on our Mountaineers Naturalist 100+ species list. NERD ALERT.
The chatty neighborhood birds were out in force this morning, and a cute male Downy Woodpecker visited the suet feeder on my deck. I’d never seen one before, and his tummy was so… *downy*, I thought he could be a baby Pileated or Northern Flicker, which I see fairly often. But he’s just the littlest woodpecker in North America.
Learned something new today! Thanks, Nature!
