|Boundary Bay, and the Peace Arch|
Take a walk with me
And talk with me about Blaine,
The City by the Bay,
Where the sky is blue and people true
And mountains are just a look away.
Blaine, the Peace Arch City.
Blaine, the City by the Bay.
Blaine, the place to live and play.
Blaine, Washington, is our home.
|Blaine Marina, with mixed scoter flock|
|Snow Geese? I thought so, but no black|
on the tail! Some kind of domestic varmints..
|Harlequin Ducks at Birch Bay|
|Pacific Loon?.... nope - it's a Common Loon that had me tricked|
|...but at some point, a path is not a path.|
|Northern Pintail - out of curiosity, I looked it up on a hunting|
forum... it says that they taste "like duck".
Sandy Point was my next stop - again, a lot of new birds, but nothing unusual. Then it was on to the Lummi Flats. This area was quite beautiful, sitting on the Lummi Reservation. There's a lot of wide open land used by geese and swans (although I saw none on my trip), and that brings with it a lot of raptors (which I did see). Bald Eagles, Northern Harrier and Cooper's Hawk were out today. Found about 20 Common Ravens in a field, which seemed odd until I saw the deer carcass they were on.
