Valarie says: Even in winter in Seattle there are birds to be seen, which is evidence of God’s grace in His creation.
Living in the Pacific Northwest, you have to take advantage of the few days during then winter months when we have light. Last week I only had an hour or so to spare during one of those days and questioned if it would be worth the effort for such a short outing. Fortunately, I managed to spot several species in such a short time period including this Downy Woodpecker.
