Valarie says: Our thanks to Montlake resident Larry Hubbell for his wonderful nature blog, Union Bay Watch. Larry is willing to sit outside in the rain for hours to get photos, so we can enjoy the birds! And thank you to Rainer Metzger of The Montlaker blog, as well, for keeping us up to date on Union Bay Watch and other northeast Seattle news.

Having hauled out his 30-or-so pounds of camera gear, which includes a massive 400-mm lens and a tripod, for Larry Hubbell it’s another afternoon of patiently looking for the Highway 520 bridge bald eagles…
“Patience, there is a lot of that,” says Hubbell, who in his other life is a system data guy for Starbucks.
On this afternoon, Hubbell has set up his gear in the Madison Park neighborhood, where East McGilvra Street dead-ends into the eastern razor-wire-topped fence of the Broadmoor Golf Club.
