Visit Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge

Last winter while I was selling bird prints at an art fair, someone mentioned to me the Nisqually NWR as one of their favorite local places to go birding. I finally made the trip down to Lacey and wish I would have done it sooner, especially since the wonderful 5 1/2 mile, Brown Farm Dike Trail will soon be removed due to the estuary restoration project. Although the refuge is located right beside I-5, I hardly noticed. I was too involved by the sounds of birds and trying to identify others to notice the cars off in the distance.

Greater Yellowlegs

Through the trees we saw a juvenile eagle eating its prey.
