Traveling, Cooking, Reading, and Trains

Sunday April 22, 2012 was a beautiful day in the Northwest. We went with our birder friends (or birder friend and his wife) up to the Ridgefield Wildlife Refuge where you can drive around a big loop and see tons of birds.
I’m getting some help from Jay on the identification below
Something startled this flock; it was amazing to see and hear them take wing
