So I got to count birds; 5 hawks, on trees and light poles; half a dozen eagles, and as many nests; hundreds and hundreds of ducks and Canada geese in soggy, muddy fields; small flocks of starlings and pigeons roosting on trees and wires; and a constant stream of gulls overhead, heading southwest to wherever they go at dusk. I miss that, now that the new highway system is open and I have to keep my eyes on the road.
I pulled off, twice, to take quick photos with the little point-and-shoot.
|Gazebo and branches. A bare hint of sunset, which quickly faded to grey.|
|Mount Baker and blueberry field. The plants turn red for the winter.|
I've got the tank cleaned and refurbished. My critters are happy with their new climbing equipment/nibbles. And I'm tuckered out. Goodnight!
