(YET MORE PHOTOS ADDED EARLY FRIDAY!)
When we mentioned receiving so many bird photos during the snow/ice storm that they seemed to merit their own gallery, that drew some positive response – so we’re launching it now, between morning/afternoon coverage, and will continue adding to it. Top photo is Mark Wangerin‘s male Anna’s Hummingbird; next, a beautiful owl whose photo was tweeted by Illusions Hair Design (WSB sponsor) last night:
Beautiful – and of course the bigger birds can be deadly too. Sherman’s Corner posted this next one on Facebook, looking to ID this bird that suddenly swooped down and killed a pigeon in the back yard:
Taught well by WSB birders, we guessed Cooper’s Hawk. Were we correct?
ADDED THURSDAY NIGHT: Suzanne has shared some wonderful photos. First one we’re featuring – a flicker (type of woodpecker, if you didn’t already know that):
Danny McMillin photographed this bald eagle on Monday near Alki Point:
On our snowy Sunday (seems so long ago!), Satom photographed Steller’s Jays with blooming witch hazel (thanks to Toni Reineke for forwarding the photo):
These crows were photographed by Emily Austin:
And here, courtesy of Mark Dale, is an American Robin:
AND MORE: Many hummingbirds. From Monica and Lisa:
Another bird from Mark Wangerin – this time a spotted towhee:
Plus one more from Suzanne, a fox sparrow:
Christina says her Khaki Campbell ducks were not pleased by the weather:
13-year-old Helen caught a group of robins:
Katie declared these to be robin tracks:
And we’re going to end with a bird-related sight: Beautifully iced chicken wire, from Brian Allen:
Thanks AGAIN to everyone who has shared photos, of birds and kids and iced plant stems and stuck buses and snowpeople and so much more. Sorry we couldn’t publish every single one … but don’t stop!
Sorry, comment time is over.
