 Pelagic Birding on Washington痴 Coast
.   Speaker:  Jim Danenbaker

Jim Danzenbaker is now a regular spotter and mate on the Westport Seabirds pelagic trips out of Grays Harbor.  These summer excursions go 20-30 miles out into the Pacific Ocean give birders a unique opportunity to see and identify seabirds that otherwise can't be seen from land. Jim will describe these tours and show pictures. These tours are now well known by Washington State birders.  

Jim, who lives in Battle Ground, is one of our premier birders.  He formerly worked for Kowa Optics and made contacts that led to him making excursions way south, to the Falkland Islands and South  Georgia Islands. He did a wonderful program for us in 2013 on those excursions way south, to the Falkland Islands and South  Georgia Islands. He did a wonderful program for us in 2013 on those adventures.  Jim posts sightings online frequently and he seems to be able to find species that many of us miss.  Come and hear from a very accomplished and informative birder.

Vancouver Hummingbird Fledging Video

Bob Rossi shared this video of 2 young hummingbirds fledging for Vancouver Audubon Website viewing. It was taken this summer in Vancouver, WA outside his kitchen window. 
He even bought a great camera in order to take the videos after realizing his phone camera just wouldn稚 do the trick. Thanks Bob
