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.
