Darrington Bluegrass Festival

I had a great time at the Darrington Bluegrass Festival this last weekend about an hour north east of Seattle where I met up with my friend Jay and his dog Duchess seen here in the picture.

The High Desert Museum

When my friends Phil and Jody were here in Bend we spent a day a out at the High Desert Museum just sound of Bend.  The raptor house is part of the museum and houses all kinds of disabled raptors-- a Peregrine Falcon is shown here.

They had a display of disgustingly cute river otters too.

Birds Seen In Bend, Oregon's Shevlin Park

 Last week I spotted this Bald Eagle nest in Shevlin Park and saw both the mom and dad tending the nest.  I went back yesterday and saw this immature eagle in the same nest.

Then down the trail a little way I spotted this black headed gross beak.
