Herring Gull and Ring-billed Gulls... It's so much fun to photograph
gulls from unique angles.

Recent Hawk Ridge shots...
Here is an immature Northern Harrier I photographed today at Hawk
Ridge. The Northern Harriers are so beautiful and unique, especially
when you see them up close! This is one of my personal favorite shots
I've taken so far this fall...

Below are photos taken with the more basic point-and-shoot, of an
adult and juvenile Northern Harrier next to each other, as well as a
close up of the gray ghost (adult male). It was so cool to see them up
close!

A recent front has forced through the area, and strong west &
northwest winds are expected over the next few days... just in time
for the Broad-winged Hawks' big push through Hawk Ridge.

Good birding,
