It may officially be Fall but the constant rain here in the Puget Sound Area suggests it’s really winter. So, when we finally got some sunshine on a day when we didn’t have any obligations, we headed out early to Theler’s Wetland. Unfortunately, we didn’t see many birds, and, worst of all, it was so foggy that the shots I did get were awful.
When we went to Port Orchard to see what was in the Marina, the sun finally broke through but the many yachts had driven most of the birds out of the marina. We had to wait until the end of the dock to get some shots. As it turned out, they were well worth the wait, reminded me why I enjoy taking shots of birds.
This little Horned Grebe was the first bird I spotted,
but this Cormorant seemed equally willing to pose.
There were also large numbers of Goldeneye near the end of the dock.
The light was actually bright enough that I managed to get a relatively good shot of a Goldeneye taking off.
