Leucistic red tailed hawk; seen around Everett village/covered bridge area. We have seen her on a nest in past years, but have never seen her offspring. Visitors often report her as a "snowy owl."
Nematodes on newts. Associated with environments with snails - a host in the life cyle of snails - not harmful to the newt - eventually work their way out of the animal as they develop.
The sample was collected in August; the observation was made the following February.
