Watching the Black Oystercatchers in Deception Pass State Park.
Solitary pairs of Black Oystercatchers (Haematopus bachmani) nest on solitary islands above the high tide mark. A simple scrape in the rocks is all they require. Locally they can be found around the rocky shores of the San Juans, Whidbey and Fidalgo Islands. Pairs are monogamous and return to ...

A post for Skywatch Friday.
February in the Pacific Northwest is typically rainy and overcast. Once in a while, however, the skies clear giving us a beautiful and sunny winter day. Such was the case on Tuesday this week. This is Skagit Bay at the northern end of Puget Sound in Washington State. I took a nice, ...

+Google+ Over on Blogger it says I need to confirm my G+ profile.  When I get here, there doesn't seem to be anything to do that I can find.  What does this message mean?  What do I need to do?  Thanks.

+Dave Wenning The problem is the interaction between Blogger and G+

If there's something we can do to help you here, then we need to know exactly what it is that Blogger is asking you to do. We can't help you with "something".

However, the interaction is initiated at the Blogger end, and the people who will know more about the interaction between Blogger and G+ are the Blogger experts in the forum that Kamal linked to.

Yesterday, more than 150 of us gathered for the annual First Day Hike at Deception Pass State Park, Washington.
Yesterday, New Year's Day, I attended the fifth annual First Day Hike at Deception Pass State Park. These hikes have become a tradition in Washington State Parks and around the country. Our destination was Hoypus Point which introduced me to a section of the park I had never explored.

This morning I returned to Hoypus Point in Deception Pass State Park, this time to explore the CCC Crossing Trail.
The other day I took my first hike out to Hoypus Point in Deception Pass State Park. I wanted to get my bearings for the upcoming First Day Hike for 2016. As I mentioned, I had never explored this section of the park. Since then, the skies have cleared and the temperatures have dropped.

One of my longer posts, but there was a lot to discover on this hike at Deception Pass State Park.
What is it about a trail that is so enticing? I find myself compelled to follow its course to see where it goes. What's at the end? What will I discover along the way? I was delighted when Deception Pass State Park announced that this year's First Day Hike would be at Hoypus Point at the north ...

I would suggest just sending people to this thread at the Blogger Help Forum:  

https://productforums.google.com/forum/?utm_medium=email&utm_source=footer#!msg/blogger/o8eRG2Rkpc4/2l_lctU1EQAJ

All of the disparate, seemingly unrelated parts are tied together and explained so that the response makes sense.

Thanks very much.
