A robin on the beach.
A GBH fishing for a snack for fledglings in the colony.
I thought this was a box turtle, but I don't think after further observation. I also don't think it's native to Washington. Any feedback would be helpful since he/she wandered into my yard and I'm trying to find out whether he/she should be released into local wetland habitat.
Fragrant white flowers.
Needles 4 inches, blunt, blue-green with white-striped inner surfaces.
Found underneath and along with Acer macropyllum, Populus trichocarpa and Oemleria cerasiformis in the East Duwamish Green Belt

Found an adult Barred Owl on a trail, and then saw the baby Barred Owl nearby on the ground peeking out from behind a large tree trunk!
The other adult was also perched nearby up higher looking down.
Returned soon later to find the baby climbing up the large tree trunk a few steps at a time with intermediate flapping. Adult would call softly to him (a soft, quieter version of her territorial call [not "who-cooks-for-you, caterwauling, or hee-aw], presumably encouraging him to climb higher or fly. She eventually flew over to him and he flew to the branch she was on.
