  • Thanksgiving?!? ACK!!!! I am a unicorn! Nope, not a turkey, I am a unicorn! The snood is a distinctive feature of the male turkey. It has no known function except for the helpful turkicorn disguise. Happy Thanksgiving!

    Photographer: Angela Marie

  • The symbol of Thanksgiving that was nearly our national bird. Ubiquitous to our outdoors, the wild turkey is beautiful in its own way. Proudly strutting their iridescent feathers are the males or toms. Wild turkeys can fly up to 60 mph, run up to 20mph, can see in color three times better than humans, hear another tom a mile away, and roost in trees at night. They are still bummed about that one loss vote to the Bald Eagle. Happy Thanksgiving!

  • A drenching rain fell on Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge mid-November. Even the swans got wet.

    Photographer: Melaine Williams

  • Reaching for the last leaf in autumn's home stretch, the kinglet will soon need to conserve energy by puffing up and fluffing his feathers when sleeping. They subsist primarily on moth caterpillars found over-wintering on trees. Smaller than a chickadee, the kinglets have four times more feather mass committed to insulation than to flying in the winter. Almost too fast to see and keep up with but worth the wait! Photographed in the Slavin Conservation Area the past month.

  • I've been working on a house in Deer Park and we had some unexpected visitors who have been hanging around all week. Thursday I was working on the patio on a ladder, got down to move and noticed something out of the corner of my eye. It was this momma moose and her young'un, about 20 feet away. Apparently they kneel down to get a drink off the ground.

    Photographer: Tom Peacock

  • Our winter friends from up North are starting to arrive. This is a Gray-crowned Rosy finch. They live in Alaska and northern Canada and move South for the winter normally found in flocks. My wife and I found a flock of them on Steptoe butte on Nov. 5. A very colorful bird.

    Photographer: Buck Domitrovich Cheney W.A.

  • This is a Bufflehead duck. I shot this on Thursday, Oct 29 at the pond, third green of Meadowwood Golf Course, corner of Molter Road and Valleyway. I live very near. I first saw the Buffleheads in April. Took some pictures of them then, but nothing like this. I took this about 15 minutes before sunset, and the light was just awesome. Shot this through the chain link fence with a Canon G3x zoomed out near the end around 600mm. I have lived out here for 10 years now and this is the first year I have seen the Buffleheads.
