Rare Bird Sighting!

Its call, unmistakeable. Its presence? Unbelievable. But here it is, wandering the grounds, headed toward the manager’s office thinkin’ maybe this looks like a nice place to live…

Actually, Wild Turkeys aren’t so rare in these parts. I’m new here in eastern Washington. Sometimes they come out of their wilderness (exactly where I don’t know yet) just checking things out. There’s a nice park a few blocks away. Maybe they live there. I hope to go on some day hikes soon and explore the wild places. Have a wild week!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Prolific

From the archives…all on Whidbey Island, WA – all of Nature’s bounty…

There is a stretch of beach along Admiralty Bay on Whidbey Island where odd shaped stones are found. But they’re not stones, really. More like baked clay from the cliffside. Actually they are called concretions – “a hard, compact mass of matter formed by the precipitation of mineral cement within the spaces between particles.” – Wikipedia. Beach walkers find them and display them on a driftwood log or a boulder – like this one. They are too miraculous to take from the site (though they are…and I have! created a little patio in front of an Adirondack chair in my backyard once…then returned them all to the beach several months later). This community collection grew over one summer. Many shaped like fried eggs! Click on ‘concretion’ in the tags below to see other photos of them on my site.   PROLIFIC

From the archives: Feb 1, 2007 – Whidbey Island, WA. I miss that view of the sky. Sunrise particularly sweet and subtle. Moon glow. Have a wonderful week of RISE/SET
