A walk in the forest

I love the trees in the Quinault Rain Forest.

We walked in the rain.

Steller's Jay

the Varied Thrush, the ferns and the moss
call this forest home.

That stellar's jay is great! It seems so colorful that it belongs in a tropical rainforest.

I have always wanted to go there. Such a strange idea...a rainforest in the northwest.

Dear Sherry....how lovely....

The third photograph made me shiver.....for me it shows the true beauty of the forest.....I am at one in the woods....I belong to the trees and moss.....

Another few weeks and your tree will be breaking bud.....It is exciting to think that you have a tree here......

Beautiful pics Q
The birds are so different to anything I've seen. Makes you realize how species differ according to region, even in the same country.

Dear Flowergardengirl,
The birds in the PNW are different from my birds too.
I enjoyed seeing so many.

Dear Scienceguy288,
The forest is very incredible.
I hope you do get to go someday. Lake Quinault Lodge is a great place to stay.
I have enjoyed your science cup!
Lots of fun and I learned so much.
Thank you!

Dear Cheryl,
You would love the temperate rain forest. The trees are so ancient.
I too belong to the forest.
It is a magical place.

Dear Stacey,
I am in love with the temperate rain forest.
It is a magical place. There is one tree that I feel "one" with.
I could move there.

Dear Shelia,
So many birds! It is amazing how different habitats support different birds.
I enjoy traveling. I really enjoy birding and seeing different butterflies.
My favorite part of this trip was seeing my daughter!

Lovely pics. Those birds are truly beautiful. And the trees too.

Q said...

Dear Wendy,
I posted more about the time we spent at Lake Quinault on my Holiday blog! It was wonderful.

Dear MAry,
I had thought I would actually write down all the birds I have seen in my lifetime last winter but did not get to it! Maybe one of these days I will. I have a beautiful Audubon Life List Journal I could fill in. I have seen so many lifers this year.
It was great to see this Jay.
