365 Nature – Day 92

In 2016 I’m doing a 365 Nature project. Each day of the year I will post something here about nature. It may be any format, a photo, video, audio, sketch or entry from my nature journal. It could be a written piece. Each day I will connect to nature in some way and share it here by the end of that day. You can keep up-to-date by subscribing to the RSS feed or be notified by email. See all the 365 Nature posts.




Union Bay is just north of the arboretum in Seattle and today I walked along Marsh and Foster Islands. Sitting in a tree to greet me was a Bald Eagle, overlooking the UW rowing practice, and probably the ducks as well. As I watched the Bald Eagle a large NOAA ship passed by, certainly not something I see everyday on Union Bay. The warm, sunny weather on a Friday afternoon brought out quite a number of recreation boats as well and there was not much to see on the bay because of the steady traffic. I was lucky enough to watch a Great Blue Heron fly in near me and land behind the boardwalk.

I listened to many birds singing on Marsh Island, notably an American Goldfinch. I later caught a recording of a Belted Kingfisher as it was disturbed and flew away.

Back up near my daughter’s classroom I found more fungus which looked similar to the kind we found in our backyard yesterday.
