Today we took advantage of the sunny weather and visited Magic Island, where I took pictures of some lichens and other flora and fauna that caught my attention.
Of particular interest were a very late Hermit Thrush foraging at the edge of the woods and on the beach. Also several plants getting started early in the unseasonably warm winter we have been having so far. Rowan found a large flat worm while looking in the tide pools on Magic Island, and while I was out looking at it, I noticed a couple of Common Murres, one appearing to be completely back to breeding plumage.
This evening I was able to get some pictures of a male Anna’s Hummingbird resting in the pine tree between visits to our feeder.
