We had the pleasure of joining friends Paul and Goly for some bird watching activities on the east side of the Cascades last Sunday. It was a blast, and I learned a lot about birds (especially migratory birds) in the process. I also learned that Falcons are next to impossible to photograph when flying… they’re incredibly fast and you loose sight of them as soon as they appear. The photograph below is I believe (as a bird-watching newbie) a Great Horned Owl. Someone please correct me if I’m wrong.
