Another rare one
« on: June 10, 2007, 06:34:46 PM »
This is one you don't see everyday, unless of course you live in Alaska, or in BC.  These were a treat.

You must have not visited Whatcom or Skagit county lately... I always like looking at a tumpetor or tundra and will blast away at a mute!

Did you take these photos in this state? looking at the surrounding foilage and the color of the grasses it may be rare,being that there is a breeding pair, but my guess is that photo was shot somewhere else prior to migration?

Here is a rare one for ya shot this winter through my spotting scope (about 200 yards out) and little cheap digital. This bird caused all sorts of havic in 3 counties.



here is another rare one, different species from the above one..

i was kind of thinking the same thing. thats a trumpeter, right?? i will never claim to be anywhere near a bird expert, but if it's a trumpeter, bone, you need to come over here some time. there's tones of them here up in skagit county.

Those are trumpetors, my photos are not. Down in Skagit county the majority of the swan population is tundra though there are still plenty of trumps in there. In Whatcom county it is the opposite, mostly trumps.

It was in BC.  But have seen them around.  Tundras are much more common.  I had no idea there were that many Trumpets on the west side though.  Pretty cool birds.

damn bone...you should have stopped by. i'm in kirkland all day every day seemingly. traffic is great in kirkland...good thing you didn't end up in bellevue around 4:00. next time you're over this way, let me know, i'll buy lunch

oh and BTW, wrong time of year for snows and swans, and a wee bit too far south.

You're killing me with your smiley faces.  SHOW OFF!  I was doing an inspection at your hospital there.  Traffic wasn't that bad though we were on 405 and it wasn't the best as was 90 from Issaquah.  I was just reading taxidermy magazines so it all paid the same to me.  I got to eat dinner at some Italian place, Fat tires or something like that.  Good eats.

No I think they are COOL! 

Yep, Cafe Veloce or something like that.  Great food, gorgeous help, and did I mention the great food.  I had the Dungenes Scalopinni, with a side of bread.  Love it when somebody else is buying the groceries.
