These are some of the feathered critters I saw at Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge. I am hoping someone will identify this duck for me. He was different to any kind I had seen before, and I was interested in the fact that his tail looked more like a fan.
You can enlarge them to get more of the details.
I recognize this bird as a Cedar Waxwing. We have them in Virginia though I rarely see them.
Easy to recognize, our American Robin.
Not sure what this one is.
As we were leaving Nisqually I saw a falcon/hawk (?) fly across the road on a bend. I was very happy to find that he had perched on the top of the pine, and we stopped for a while to take a few shots. He was obviously on the hunt for dinner as his head swiveled in what seemed like all directions. Any ideas as to what he might be?
In my post I have three birds I am very interested in identifying. If you can help I would be very grateful. In the meantime I am pouring through my bird books.
