Baby Birds at Juanita Bay

My latest bird walk with camera was at Juanita Bay in Kirkland.  This is a wonderful birding spot due to the variety of resident birds including swallows, eagles, all kinds of ducks, usually Great Blue Heron and other typical woods and water birds here in Western Washington.  I had a lovely time with over 100 photos and I share this one of a fledgling RedWing Blackbird and parent.  The fledgling can fly well enough to follow the parent around but is not yet feeding himself.  Kinda reminds me of a teenage boy...

The boardwalk is elevated and the birds were on a log in the water just below the pier on the western boardwalk.  I was maybe 8 feet away and the zoom on my point&click camera did a great job.

I hope you are enjoying the birds this spring too!
