I took my camera for a walk about in Twisp yesterday. Here are a few things that I saw. The flowering trees are lovely right now. The dachshund was across the street and when he saw me, he put on his purposeful look and marched across the pavement, sniffed me once, and turned and walked back. I guess I passed muster.

I had a nice walk near the confluence of the Twisp and Methow Rivers last week. New snow blanketed the ground and the sun was shining brightly. Fortunately I remembered to bring some filters.

I had an errand that took a while in Twisp the other day so I whiled away my time with a walk in the park. I was socially distanced from people but not with the trees.

The Methow Valley Farmers’ Market in Twisp is always a happening place! So much good fresh produce, ready to eat food and art too!

This winter birders are observing many Varied Thrushes in North Central Washington. These birds are closely related to American Robins – same general size and shape but with some very distinct markings. We counted quite a few on the Christmas Bird Count around Twisp. More than usual although it is an expected species in the winter.

Saturday in Twisp, I noticed lots of them in the crabapple trees in the park. They would fly if I walked but if I stayed in the car I could photograph them for as long as I wanted. The bird with the gray band across its chest is a female and the one with the black band is a male.
