Made it up to Hawks Prairie in Lacey for an afternoon just before the governor told us all to stay home, and got some nice birds. No ducks this time, just the twitchy, little, hyperactive ones... ;)

An inquisitive Hutton's vireo...


A cute little ruby-crowned kinglet...


An elusive Wilson's warbler...


And an energetic little golden-crowned kinglet...

Don't worry about the stay at home order. The birds will come to the Bird Whisperer. If I recall correctly, outdoor walks are allowed as long as you stay 6 feet away from everyone else. The governor did not say you couldn't take your camera along while walking.

I am in all three high risk groups. Except for medical appointments, I must remain inside regardless of what the governor says.

Thanks, Bill! Being almost 70 with asthma, I'm in a bit of a risky group myself, but my immune system has always been fairly robust, and if I keep my distance, I should be okay. Besides, I live in a MUCH less overcrowded area now, and that spot at Hawks Prairie is largely ignored even in the best of times, so I'm probably safe enough there. Once the sun comes back out... ;)
 
The weather has been not so nice the few days. The problem is when the weather turns a little nice. People come out in droves. Nature,bird photography has always been somewhat non social. At least for me. Leaving before the sun rises. R.J

Many of the areas where we would photograph birds (parks, DFW sites, etc) have been closed due to people flocking (pun intended) to them when the weather is nice in defiance of the quarantine orders.
