New Photos: Pacific Northwest Parks & Reserves 2019

I recently completed my first photo outing of the new year, spending a couple days leading local tours here in the Pacific Northwest. One of our days was nearly rained out, though my hearty clients and I still ventured out and explored several different areas. So there aren’t a ton of photos from this first session.

However, it gave me an excuse to process some other images taken recently. I captured a couple shots of the January lunar eclipse from my deck here in Seattle (clear skies for a celestial event… a rare occurrence!), and I also finally wrapped up processing a few photos from a private local tour I led back in October.

I’ve added the October shots to the PNW 2018 gallery. Here are a few preview images from that outing:

Black-Capped Chickadee

For 2019, I’ve started a new PNW 2019 gallery. Here’s a preview of some of the recent photos.

Lunar Eclipse

On January 20th, we experienced a “super blood wolf moon” eclipse. For once, we had clear skies in Seattle and I was able to photograph it from my deck.

Short-Eared Owl

A Short-eared owl perches on bare branches in western Washington.

Rough-Legged Hawk

A Rough-legged hawk flies in front of a Short-eared owl in Washington’s Skagit Valley.

Leucistic Bald Eagle

My first view of a leucistic Bald eagle. Note the lighter-than-normal body plumage in this adult bird.

Barn Owl

I haven’t had many encounters with this, the most widespread owl species in the world. This one finally came out into the open as darkness descended.

Sandhill Crane

A Sandhill crane takes a walk in the rain.
