The best part of being retired, at least in the Pacific Northwest, is that you can take advantage of what little sunshine there might be during the week. While others were working inside during the three hours of sunshine this week, I went birding.
Although I didn’t see anything spectacular, I did manage to get a shot of one of the many Towhees recently returned to our area,
saw a male Wood Duck in full breeding colors,
a sight that never fails to delight me,
and I got to admire once again the feather pattern on this Double-Crested Cormorant.
Don’t know about you, but I’d much rather be out birding than sitting at home hanging up on robotic political calls.
