Sitka Blacktail Deer

Weather: Weather the last couple of days has been mostly cloudy with some rain. Wednesday it rained for much of the day and Thursday the rain started late morning but let up by evening.

Birds: The ravens continue to regularly feed on the campus lawn. The Savannah Sparrows are still quite abundant. I hear Orange-crowned and Townsend’s Warblers singing frequently. The Winter Wrens are still actively singing as well. Thursday morning down at the park a small flock of six Brants flew past.

Other Notes: There was a male deer in our back yard Thursday morning (see photo above).

I took Rowan and Connor to Totem Park this morning because Connor’s preschool was taking a trip to the park. Connor, Rowan, and I along with two of Connor’s friends from preschool formed a small group to wander the beach. The kids seemed to have a lot of fun turning over rocks and finding crabs. We also found some starfish and even a blenny.
