With the spring “dawn chorus” in full swing, we thought it would be appropriate to rerun local photographer and Land Trust Natural History Society newsletter editor Wendy Feltham varieties of songbirds around Port Townsend. Enjoy!

  1. During this pandemic and having just traveled from Costa Rica, I have become a backyard bird enthusiast. My favorite is the Western Tanager and have some very nice fotos shot right from my downstairs bedroom window. So much joy in the watching.

  2. Thank you so much for posting this! For those of us who are new to the Pacific NW birds, it is a great way besides our bird book to start to get a handle on what we are seeing and hearing in our backyard!

  3. Wendy, What a delight! So happy to see that you are out there snapping away and capturing the singers of the sounds of spring!

  4. Thanks, Wendy, for sharing these lovely photos. I’ve seen most in my backyard this spring but am especially impressed by the male house finch mating song. It’s much more elaborate than the song in SoCal.
