p1070128I believe this is a Wood Duck. We spotted it on Juanita Bay February 11th.

more-snow-colville-007This last photo is from northeastern Washington. A couple of these Grouse would come to this tree outside our son and daughter in law’s in the low light of evening and early morning. They were really enjoying the buds on the tree. It was hard to get a great shot from the window. This was taken on Tuesday morning February 28th.

Linking to Saturday’s Critters at Viewing Nature with Eileen.

We have been on a slow return to whatever might be called normal at this old house. We need to get out and have a good walk again soon. We arrived home from Eastern Washington on Wednesday. We are observing Lent which began on Wednesday. Our weekend should be relatively quiet. Hope your March is starting well.

  1. That first photo is so charming with the row of houses across the pond…The ducks are pretty, too! Are buds a renewable resource? 🙄

  2. The mallards have such pretty colors and I love the red winged black bird. I’ve seen them around the town pond here but haven’t been able to get a picture lately. They keep flying off.

  3. Hello Ellen, love your variety of birds. The Redwing is beautiful. I like the cool Grouse and the pretty Mallards and Wood Duck. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Enjoy your day and the weekend!

  4. I enjoyed your pictures of the ducks, as well as the red-winged blackbird and the grouse. The red on the red-winged blackbird really shows up against the brown background. My dad always enjoyed watching the grouse.

    Have a lovely weekend. We, too, are observing Lent.

  5. Those pictures are amazing Ellen! Love the first one with the contrast of the bright green mallard drakes and the orange ducky feet to the subdued background colours – just beautiful! That wood duck has the most interesting colours too. Wow!

  6. The wood duck has such pretty colours. I always enjoy listening to the red-winged blackbirds singing their melodies. Hope you settle in again soon!
