    We had a Golden Eagle sitting atop our neighbor’s fir tree for over 1/2 hr on Tuesday evening. Never seen one here on Eldridge Ave. before.

    I have had a Selaphorus sp hummingbird at my feeder everyday for the past month. I am curious to know if anyone else has noted the same at their feeders?

    Please let me know. Also if you want to see and verify the bird let me know.

    Date today is 10/28.

    I’d really like to see some owls. Where is a good place to view and time to go?

    • Pam Borso says:

      Right now, Barred owls are often in deep woodsy settings, along Whatcom Creek, at Point Whitehorn at the Stimpson Forest even the Interurban Trail. Listen for other birds mobbing them: Crows, Robins and such

  5. Lorena Havens says:

    We live in the foothills, off of Mosquito Lake Road. There seem to be very few Robins and Cedar waxwings this year. Has anyone else noticed this?

    • Pam Borso says:

      Overall, the birds are diminishing due to habitat destruction and Climate Change. You can create a haven in your own back yard by planting native plants and supplying water and nest boxes.

      I have noticed a significant reduction in several species of birds in our yard off Everson-Goshen road the past few years, including pine siskins, olive-sided flycatchers, evening grosbeaks, both types of kinglets. Currently there are very few common birds like juncos, towhees, nuthatches and even chickadees. We have 2 1/2 acres of native trees and plants, and I made sure to put out lots of watering stations this past, dry summer, but the dirth of all birds is very troubling and sad. This is a sneak peak at what lies ahead for our planet…
