Seems like a good day for another compilation of cool bird photos sent by readers (THANK YOU!). The bird in the first two is a newsmaker, explains Sharon Wada: “Wanted to share a few images for the birders who were quite excited to see a precious Wandering Tattler foraging in the rocks along Alki. Appears that the Tattler was finding lots to eat including a small crustacean in the seaweed.”
For the hundreds of bird photos we’ve published over the years, that’s the first Wandering Tattler!
The next two bird photos are from Mark MacDonald – first, a Caspian Tern fishing at Jack Block Park:
Next, a Kingfisher:
