Birding Port Orchard

Last Sunday’s trip to Theler Wetlands was pretty forgettable except for this shot of a Yellowlegs,

one of the first I’ve seen this year.

However, the follow-up trip to Port Orchard made the day. I am particularly fond of this shot of a Pelagic Cormorant swallowing it’s catch.

And the Horned Grebes just keep getting more and more spectacular as they don full-breeding colors.

So many of the shots jump off the screen that it’s hard to even decide which shots are the best ones.

When they’re this good, though, I don’t suppose it really matters too much which shots you include. So many are in full-breeding colors that I am surprised that they still haven’t paired up and let for their breeding grounds.

  1. I’m stil trying to figure out how that Cormorant got the whole thing down his gullet, Loren! That’s more of a snake-like quality seems to me…Spectacular shots, thanks for the share!
