There are the Camp Robbers at Mt. Rainier (actually Gray Jays and Clark's Nuthatchers) who will beg and steal any food you leave unattended even for a second (as the strip of bacon when I turned to the stove to cook the eggs)
or even if you don't.
Here are some other birds of some note.
|Great Blue Heron|
|Chaffinch--taken in Scotland|
|Some more large birds--the Sandhill Cranes|
We spent a couple of days with the kids at the lake this week, and the birds we spent time with were the ducks.
But on the way at a rest stop this sign made me laugh.
I laughed because it reminded me of these gulls when we camped at Sun Lakes a couple of years ago.
They were quite determined.
A collage suggested itself for the header image.
