9/5/12 The arrival of the evening grosbeaks in my backyard has signaled the beginning of fall migration. I decided to head over to Nisqually to see what birds may be passing through, and instead found it to be extremely quiet. This little tree frog greeted me on the trail in, but over the next couple of hours and no real sightings, I decided that my photo op wasn't going to reveal itself. At this point I figured I would just enjoy the weather and hike when a great blue heron arrived and deemed me worthy of a fishing lesson. It is no wonder I receive so much enjoyment from this location with every trip!
