    Dipper Demonstrates Dipping Washougal Date Added: Feb 19, 2013

    The American Dipper is the only diving song bird in North America. This one was demonstrating its dipping and diving moves at the fish ladder on the southeast side of Steigerwald Lake National Wildlife Refuge. Based on the rhythmic bouncing it must also be listening to some type of rock music on its headphones.

    Dipper Dive and Exit Stage Left Camas Date Added: Feb 18, 2013

    The dipper, still bouncing to the beat of a different drummer, takes one last dive before flying into the bushes.

    Dippers use their wings to "fly" under the surface of the water. This one demonstrated this in a somewhat visible fashion as it did this while standing on one of the steel beams that makes up the fish ladder at Steigerwald Lake National Wildlife Refuge.

    On January 12, 2012 a reasonably large flock of Dunlin explored the mudflats right next to the new Nisqually Estuary Boardwalk. This made it easy to record their frantic running and probing feeding habits.

  • glabah's video

    On January 12, 2012 a flock of perhaps 2,000 dunlin decided to feed next to the Nisqually estuary boardwalk, very close to visitors. The birds are seen running from place to place while they feed on the tiny organisms that live in the tidal mud.

    Flicker Taking a Dust Bath Washougal Date Added: Jun 5, 2012

    This Northern Flicker decided to take a nice long dust bath in the gravel trail that leads through Steigerwald Lake National Wildlife Refuge.

  • glabah's video

    The incoming tide is bringing creatures and food of all kinds, which this shore bird is determined to find and eat.

  • glabah's video

    What do you really feel like you need after a long flight? A BATH!! Shore birds are no different, and so it shouldn't be too surprising to see them bathing at the refuge while they are on migration.

  • glabah's video

    For the past two years, this Marsh Wren has decided to perch in the grass beside the gravel trail on top of the new Nisqually Eastuary Dike. He gives visitors quite a talking to when he is in the mood to do so.

  • glabah's video

    Shore Birds walk and run along the beach, feeding on small animals washed up, found in the sand.

    Animated Fountain in Courtyard Bremerton Date Added: Oct 19, 2011

    Just slightly north of the new condominium, shopping center and hotel space built north of the ferry terminal, there is a small courtyard. In this courtyard, there is another animated fountain that may be found doing all manner of things with its water spouts.

  • glabah's video

    The Bremerton waterfront park fountain has exploding balls of water that appear at random moments. These are best viewed from the upper deck of the ferry from Seattle.

    This video illustrates the speed with which areas become covered with water in the Nisqually Reach and River Delta.

    While not the most organized pair, this male and female shoveler do what many of the breed do: circle eachother while stirring up food from the bottom.

    Christmas Music Lights! Fauntleroy Date Added: Dec 22, 2010

    I don't remember the exact location of this house. It was somewhere around SW 31st and Elmgrove, but that isn't the right intersection. However, the Christmas light display got my eye (how could it NOT?)

    Last Steam Run for 2010? Georgetown Date Added: Dec 17, 2010

    Here is the last steam powered model train operated on the layout on December 11, 2010. Most likely, this is the last run of 2010 due to the busyness of the Christmas season to come.

    Behind the Georgetown Powerplant Museum, live steam (actual steam powered) model trains occasionally come to life. Here, two short freight trains rush past.

    Two live steam (actual steam power) model trains pass on a loop of track at the Georgetown Powerplant Museum.

  • glabah's video

    A small steam powered model train locomotive rushes past with a short train in tow.

  • glabah's video

    This live steam model train was inspired by a British prototype. It has only a single cylinder, but seems to run quite well anyway.

    Louder Live Steam Locomotive Georgetown Date Added: Dec 17, 2010

    Most of the live steam locomotive models are very quiet, but this one makes a little more noise while it is running. You are hearing actual steam escaping from the cylinders, no a sound machine!

    Behind the Georgetown Powerplant Museum there is a group of model railroad enthusiests that have built a railroad where they can operate actual steam powered model trains. They will not be here much longer due to the land being slated for clearing and cleanup. In this video, a small locomotive lets its safety valve pop while passing.

    Miniature Hit-Miss Gas Engine Brooks Date Added: Aug 2, 2010

    Fully-functional model versions of antique gas engines are a part of the steamup as well. Here is one such model in operation at the 2010 show.

  • glabah's video

    Nobody really seems to know what this thing is, but it shows up pretty regularly at the Great Oregon Steamup every year. It is certainly at much more unique machine than the mass produced all-terrain vehicles or golf carts that most people drive around in at the steamup. Take a look at that huge bell!

    1/8 Scale Logging Demonstration Brooks Date Added: Aug 2, 2010

    On the first Weekend of the 2010 Great Oregon Steamup, this collection of 1/8 actual size logging equipment showed up and operated a small logging camp. Due to the small size, and therefore small movements, you won't see too much action until the boom swings about 2/3 of the way through the video.

  • glabah's video

    Log rolling, as deminstrated by the Northwest Logging Museum, is a skill in which two people try to roll the other off a floating log.

    We've seen this Westinghouse Traction Engine doing a stationary demonstration before, but here it is under its own power.

    July 10, 2010 was a great day to see all manner of shorebirds on the refuge. Here, you can see the "sewing machine" motion dowitchers use to feed from the mud at the bottom of the pond.
