>> Also at Fort Worden we encountered a large, mixed flock of small birds feeding around us, apparently unaware of our presence. The Golden-crowned Sparrows were practically walking on top of our shoes. Here are a couple of close-up photos.

>> Besides the birding excitement, I (Hank) happen to be awake Monday morning at about 3:00 when a 4.1 earthquake hit the Olympic Peninsula. I felt the floor roll under my feet.

>>

>> Happy Thanksgiving to all. We are thankful for all of the birders who have helped us throughout the years.
