A Sunday Walk at Theler Wetlands

I’ve been spending a lot of my free time at home reading, but I don’t do that when Leslie is off work. After we dropped the grandkids off on Sunday, we went to Theler Wetlands in Belfair. I really didn’t expect to see too many birds, but I enjoy the four mile walk and it seems impossible to walk Belfair without seeing at least some birds, or, at the very least, some insects like this dragonfly

that greeted us at the pond.

Leslie’s favorite sighting of the day was this one of the Belted Kingfisher looking down at a Great Blue Heron stalking fish.

The two are certainly my favorite birds at Theler, but I tend to prefer closeups rather than long shots like this one.

My favorite bird photo of the day would have to be this one of the same Great Blue Heron standing on a little island in the middle of the creek later in the day.

However, it’s probably a sign of how few birds we saw that my first and last shot of the day were of dragonflies.
