I love the sunshine in the winter! As well as improving my mood, it sure makes for some nice photographs too.
This Towhee posed nicely.
I went back to Dawson Creek on sunny Monday and enjoyed great views of these Hooded Mergansers. The boys are so pretty!
A heron sunning himself on the lawn .
I was tickled to get these close-up shots of a Yellow-rumped Warbler. The sunny blue sky and mossy branch are the perfect backdrop!
He was mixed in with a flock of Bushtits and Chickadees, but wasn't quite as "busy" as they were.
It was a cold morning and the edges of the pond were icy.
I couldn't resist making an icy pond mandala.
Friday we head to Ridgefield NWR for the 3rd annual auto tour. Take a look at the last two New Year's Day trips here and here. Who knows what we will see this year. The heron eating the vole was the highlight of last year! Yikes!
