Sun Day

Today was the first of what is supposed to be several “sunny” days here in the PNW, and we sure weren’t going to miss the chance to get out on a SUNday.

So we headed over to Belfair for a walk at the Theler Wetlands. Of course, we didn’t see anything new, but I managed to get some better shots of birds I’ve shown before, like this one of a Spotted Towhee

and a particularly good shot of this male Common Merganser, one which captures the dark green head, which usually shows up as black, and the distinctive beak.

If it’s sunny tomorrow, I’ll probably be off to Nisqually to try to get even more photos.

Of course with my luck, I’m probably going to be stuck inside waiting for my new Mac Pro on the sunniest day of the new year later in the week.
