As the weather takes on a chilly edge, the sun sets earlier every evening.
And the moon takes advantage by rising to center stage.
New baby chickens have arrived!
Stop by and say hi!
The San Juan Islands of Puget Sound aren’t exactly the first place people think of when conjuring images of farms. However, Turtleback Farm Inn on Orcas Island is a totally legit—and picture perfect.
Think: pear and apple trees, sheep, chickens, ducks and miles of bright green hills with mountains and ocean in the distance. Like we said, swoon. The folk national-style farmhouse dates back to the end of the 19th century, but, like most of the farmhouses on our list, has been updated over the years… >>
This year’s baby swallowtails are ready to start hunting for bugs on their own.
You’ll see the swooping swallowtails skimming our pond almost year round.
This little lady was caught red handed while grabbing green apples last weekend.
If you’re a wildlife lover, our farm will keep you busy and interested – raccoon, bald eagles, woodpeckers, songbirds. Head to the pond for Kingfisher, wood ducks and mallards or to the beach for orcas, otters and crabby salmon!
Hairy Woodpeckers are birds of mature forests across the continent. They’re also found in woodlots, suburbs, parks, and cemeteries, as well as forest edges, open woodlands of oak and pine, recently burned forests, and stands infested by bark beetles.
Our guest Frederick caught some images of this hungry bird in hunting mode.
