As Vashon was being blanketed by almost a foot of snow last weekend, island photographer Jim Diers set out to capture shots of beautiful birds, both great and small, that flitted, flew and sat sentinel in the silent, altered landscape. Here are a few of his photographs taken that day — of a Dark-Eyed Junco, a Varied Thrush, a Barred Owl and a Great Blue Heron, nestled in the treetops. For more snow-day photos from islanders, see page 9 of this week’s issue (Jim Diers Photos).
