Humpback Whale

We drove out to Commencement Bay to see if we could spot the Humpback. We lucked out and after spotting it from shore, we walked on to the ferry and I got these from the vibrating ferry deck. What a thrill to see this lovely creature in Washington waters.

Swainson's Thrush

Real strength is not just a condition of one's muscle, but a tenderness in one's spirit.

Hairy Woodpecker

This is a juvenile Hairy Woodpecker, you can tell because of the red on his forehead. It is raining very hard and he is bathing on the deck. His parents are not amused and calling him non-stop.

He finally is called to the tree, only to decide to hang up-side-down. His parents are still calling him as he ignores them for another minute. He finally flies to them so they can shove food into him.

He was acting just like some teenagers I know.
