Can't resist another picture of the mismatched bird couple, as the King's Pond saga continues :)

Unrequited love...the quail is quite smitten with the duck, following her everywhere. King's Pond romance fail.

Not even a month old, yet so big, and owning the road :) #goslings

A gorgeous Western Tanager seen at Mount Tolmie this evening.

Someone' s lazy-assed cat can't even find its own birds. I'm out birding and it's following me.

Morning's clouds from Mt. Tolmie.

The Horned Lark is still present at Clover Point, between the boathouse and sewage building. #yyj

These two weren't so eager to be free and required a little coaxing. Thanks to Wild ARC for their loving care!
