Bay pipefish Syngnathus leptorhynchus

Description

Found seining of the coast of Jackson Beach. The fish were extremely long and narrow being over 20cm in length, but less than 1cm in body depth. The fish mirrored the look of eelgrass, by having thin green bodies and angling themselves like floating eelgrass. The pipefish swam extremely slowly, using its small pelvic fins to propel themselves forward. In addition, one male was noted to be pregnant, reflecting the nature that males carry the eggs of their children in contrast to the mother.

Pacific Spiny Lumpsucker Eumicrotremus orbis

Description

Found after seining in Jackson Beach. Lumpsucker was very small in size, fingertip size, and had very small lumps on the body. Many of these lumps had small points, but the points did not feel sharp. Coloring was red, but other lumpsuckers came in shades of green and peach. In addition, the lumpsuckers seemed to primarily swim with their small pectoral fin. Additionally a small sucker was at the bottom of the fish which it used to latch onto surfaces.

Found outside my mom's work in Renton. This woodpecker was very comfortable around people! He must have made these holes in this tree earlier, because there were tons of bugs attracted to it. The woodpecker would come and get a mouthful of insects and then fly away. I was sitting right next to the tree, and he didn't even care. It was really cool.

Description

Adorable barn swallow on the roof of a building at my mom's work in Renton. He was standing guard by his nest, where another swallow was inside, presumably protecting eggs or babies. Whenever another bird came too close he'd fly around and cheep at it. Also included is a picture of the nest made of mud next to a light on the building. I could see the tail of another barn swallow sticking out from the inside.
