Jeff and Debbie were visiting from California so I took them down to the Pt Defiance Boathouse and Owens Beach while Leslie was working. It was a fortuitous visit because blue skies met with unusual birds. This is the first time I’ve ever seen Harlequin Ducks here.

The highlight of the walk was watching a bald eagle try to steal a sole from a cormorant that was having trouble swallowing it because it was too wide for his throat even though I didn’t catch a single good shot.

Later, we were also thrilled to hear these two mating eagles hold a long conversation.

We finished the day at Purdy at Margaret and Cory’s house where I saw my first Yellowlegs of the season


and captured a closeup of this Killdeer.
