I have been away in Redmond Washington for the last while enjoying some real spring weather. In the land of Microsoft it is very hard to find free wireless internet and the ones i found were not very good.
Spent a lot of time walking and birding in the area, with one trip to Nisqually Wildlife refuge, we had a 5 1/2 mile walk around the dike . Birding was spotty but it was a nice walk.
Found 2 Great-horned owl youngsters but they were too far away for a photograph. Got great looks at an American bittern from about 5 meters after it was startled by a Mink passing by.
My Bro-inlaw Reg did very well on our walk dispite having 3 back operations over the last year and having to walk with a cane.
