#FlyByFriday  by +Meg Rousher (me) +Fly By Friday
Here's a male Purple Martin flying over Lake Sammamish in Redmond, Washington, U.S.A. (I hope this doesn't post twice--new at this!). My nature photos are displayed at http://www.SongbirdPhoto.com. -Marc Hoffman.

This Field Mouse climbed up a sapling where Red-breasted Sapsuckers (a type of woodpecker) had drilled away the bark to make the sap flow. The woodpeckers enjoy both the sap and the insects it attracts. Mice are similarly omnivorous. More nature photos by me (Marc Hoffman) at http://www.SongbirdPhoto.com.

I'll be event photographer at https://www.facebook.com/events/396534603701624/ this coming Sunday evening--a free event with some of the best world music one could ever hope to hear. If you're in town, drop by--it will get non-dancers dancing and dancers sailing. My primary connection is through Rob Pastorok, producer of Global Heat (more photos of them at http://www.dartfrogmedia.com/photography/gallery.html).

Can a bird learn to play Cribbage? Find the amazing answer (or equally interesting information, at least) on my photo blog at http://www.SongbirdPhoto.com/wordpress.

I had great views of a mature Bald Eagle while kayaking on Lake Sammamish, Redmond, this afternoon. When I was the caretaker for a Sun Conure (a small South American parrot) I learned that birds feel superior to anything that is lower than them. This eagle must feel like king of the world. Lots more nature photos at www.SongbirdPhoto.com.

This is a male ("drake") Wood Duck in full courtship plumage. I shot this photo at Washington Park Arboretum in Seattle, Washington. Amazing plumage, eh? If I were a Wood Duck hen, I'd be dazzled for sure. View and purchase my photos at http://www.SongbirdPhoto.com.

Everywhere birds are building nests in preparation for breeding season. Today I saw a Black-capped Chickadee and a Red-shafted Flicker excavating holes in snags. Also got a somewhat rare glimpse at a Wilson's Snipe. Story and photos here: http://songbirdphoto.com/wordpress/?p=558

I've been watching a livecam of a Red-tailed Hawk nest streaming from Cornell Lab of Ornithology. I've also embedded it on my web site.
