January 30th, 2015 – Avian (Blue) Friday: Bluer Than Blue

Here we are just a couple of days away from Super Bowl XLIV and once again our Seattle Seahawks are about to become repeat World Champions! So this week I’m going to have to digress just a little bit from the bird photography and give a shout out to our men in blue. During the NFL season and throughout the playoffs, Seahawk fans get pumped up for the big games on Sunday and have declared each Friday as “Blue Friday”. Everyone from office professionals to those struggling on the streets to make ends meet don team apparel throughout the region. You can’t anywhere around the city without seeing someone sporting the blue and green as a show of support for the team. But this last Blue Friday of the season is the bluest of all with everything riding on the outcome of the big game.Even this Peregrine Falcon is getting in on the action and masquerading himself as a Seahawk. :):):) I along with the rest of my 12th Man brethren are getting ready for another victory parade. And oh yeah; GO HAWKS!!!
