WEST SEATTLE BIRDS: Photos to brighten the end of the weekend

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:

And a Great Blue Heron:

Also featuring a bird perched on a piling, the photo below by Lynn Hall takes its brightness from the blue sky and blue water as a Cormorant looks toward downtown:

Carrie C. sent this photo of a Golden Pheasant sighting in Highland Park last month and we just realized we hadn’t included it in previous bird galleries:

Thanks again to everyone for sharing photos – whether birds or breaking news or other West Seattle sightings – westseattleblog@gmail.com any time.

      Hasn’t been seen since its southward journey continued in spring – last report we got was Kent/Renton in April.

    So peaceful and lovely to look at in the midst of such a garbage-fire time. Thanks for these!
