Here at the end of a gray day, we have bright and beautiful bird photos, courtesy of West Seattle photographers who sent them to us to share with you. Above, David Hutchinson photographed a Harlequin Duck at Constellation Park; below, a Red-breasted Sapsucker, photographed by Mark Wangerin:
Two from Jerry Simmons – an Anna’s Hummingbird in front of fall color:
