Winston and Truman visited Magnuson Park, and kindly brought their humans along. It was a lovely morning:
We spotted this hybrid Mallard hanging out with the plain old Mallards:
Winston and Truman enjoy the promenade:
Here is a Common Goldeneye out on the lake:
We encountered a flock of wigeons on the grass. Truman wanted to avoid them, while Winston was determined to give chase. The wigeons were having none of it.
Here we see a pair of Lesser Scaup:
There was a Cooper's Hawk fanning its feathers -- I swear I've never seen a Cooper's doing this in the entire eight years I've been birding, yet in the space of one week, I had two different hawks fanning their feathers like this in two different locations. Go figure.
Winston and Truman wanted to know why I kept stopping to take photos. The point of a walk, after all, is to walk. So we did, and that was that!
