Description

It doesn't look quite right for a goldfinch, oriole, or Townsend's warbler. What could it be?

Description

The pinniped pictured here was splashing around in the surf near China Beach today, surfacing frequently and beating the water with its hind flippers. Although the pictures aren't great, my guess is that it's harbor seal based on the body shape and mottled pattern on its fur.
