Seattle wildlife

We took a short walk this afternoon.
Some vertical, but nothing like the mountains.
And certainly not at the same elevation.
Thankfully it felt easy, as it should have.

We watched a bit of Ashlan’s softball game, and then headed around Green Lake.
It was a beautiful day, in the 70’s I think, and mostly sunny in the afternoon.
No lack of families and picnics.
We took advantage of a theatre group handing out ice-cream cones for donations.
Also found some wildlife.

    Had to look up which night heron it was, but it is a very nice yellow-crowned night heron. Brain still seems to be fuzzy from vacation.

    –pooh

    I guess you’re right, since the yellow-crowned night heron is an Eastern bird. Always check the range! The dramatic stripes on the crown fooled me. I don’t usually see the top of the great blues’ heads, apparently.
