Description

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.

This small Pacific Chorus Frog was spotted jumping in the grass next to the dike pathway at the Nisqually National Wildlife Reserve. I was able to capture it from under a clump of brush and hold it gently in order to take a picture to identify it.
