Coupeville Washington

Hello, happy Thursday everyone!


I am sharing some more of my Washington State photos. On this day we stopped at the Fort Casey State Park to see the Admiralty Lighthouse. The lighthouse was cute, it seemed almost like a miniature home to me. It is also where I saw my lifer the California Quail. We also saw a few Golden-crowned Sparrows and a Spotted Towhee, lots of bunnies and a few deer.






The California Quail were camera shy so I had to stay a good distance so I would not spook them. Sorry for the photo quality.



You can just make out the Golden Crown on this Sparrows head.




The Spotted Towhee  looks like a colorful bird.


A pair of Golden-crowned Sparrows.


Some deer were walking around the park.


The bunnies were everywhere we walked in the park.

After this park visit we headed to the Coupeville-Port Angeles ferry. I will post more on that part of the trip another time. The weather was not the greatest for our ferry ride on this day but the rain held off.

My thankful list for today:
I am thankful for the rain it is necessary, but I am also thankful for clear sunny days.
I am thankful for all the beautiful places to visit in the great USA.
I thank you for visiting and your comments.


I hope you enjoyed my post and photos.  Thanks so much for visiting and for your nice comments. Have a happy day!

Thank you Michelle for hosting. Thankful Thursday

Veery

Hello and happy Monday,

I am sharing the Veery, it is a breeder in the woods near our home in Maryland. They have a weird sound and call, I usually hear them more then see them. But on this day hubby and I were walking on the fire road and there were two calling and we had some great views.



The Veery is a small Thrush species. The adults have a light brown upperpart, underparts are white and the breast has faint brown spots.





It is one of my favorite local breeding birds and is always a treat to see.
