Quick Check-In

The Southern Residents have been a bit scarce over the last week, something that's not atypical for August when there's a lull in the salmon runs so they spend a bit more time out at the open ocean. In case you, like me, need a brief "whale fix", here's a short video clip from the last time I saw them last weekend.

I've been fighting off another round of this summer cold, so I haven't had the chance to get out or take too many pictures. I did make it down to Cattle Point last week where I saw three white-winged scoters (190), bringing me within 10 species of my year list goal.

Remember to check back on Saturday for the northwest nature blogger scavenger hunt. I'll also be spending a long weekend over on Vancouver Island, so I'll definitely have some things to blog about when I get back!

LOVE the video! I miss this aspect of the northwest sooo much! I'm so glad to get little glimpses of it through your blog. Thank you so much for what you do!
