August 17 – Just Backyard

Too many errands, meetings and deadlines to deal with today so my only birding was a bit of staring out into the backyard and quickly snapping a few photos. In addition to the birds photographed – White-crowned Sparrow immature, Red-breasted Nuthatch, Dark-eyed Junco and American Robin immature, there were also four Steller’s Jays eating from the peanut jug and from my hand whenever I went outside, and Black-capped and Boreal Chickadees.

I am mostly packed. I head off with my birding friend Lena for Juneau on Friday, Ketchikan on Saturday and the Wilderness Birding Adventures Juneau to Whittier Gulf of Alaska trip on Sunday. Maybe a new bird or two?
