It's been a tad on the hot side in Seattle of late -- upper 80s, even 90 at times. This means I can't enjoy being outside much, which is irksome, as when the sun is shining, I like to be outdoors. And of course, I want to go look at birds.
Thank goodness I am an early riser, even on weekends. On Saturday I got up at 5:00am, and was down at the Fill by 6, where Truman and I were able to check out the birds in cool comfort.
There were lots of juvenile sparrows hopping about -- I'm pretty sure this one is a Savannah Sparrow, though I'm open to other opinions:
This Violet-Green Swallow was over by the athletic fields:
And back on the Loop Trail, this Anna's Hummingbird perched nicely:
Truman likes the grass by the main pond, which is stiff and dry in the heat now, and he had a lovely long roll there:
I'm now caught up with photos, so may not update for a few days. Stay cool!
