Activity on the Rise


This week’s photo, taken February 23, 2016 at Meadowbrook Pond in northeast Seattle, features a cooperative SONG SPARROW posing for a photo shoot.

Days are getting longer, and bird activity is on the rise in the Seattle area. AMERICAN ROBINS, BLACK-CAPPED CHICKADEES, DARK-EYED JUNCOS, BEWICK’S WRENS and SONG SPARROWS, to name a few, are singing and moving about in our yard. While walking our neighborhood the other day, I heard the long, flute-like whistle of one of my favorite songsters, the VARIED THRUSH. Spring is on the way.

    Not sure if I’ve heard the Varied Thrush in our part of the country, but the Thrush song I have heard is my favorite, also. The White-throated Sparrow is second.
