Five squirrels here.
Out for a walk on a gray, slightly dismal day in Seattle and decided to pick something to observe. As I walked through my local park, I noticed that the Polystichum munitum were growing in abundance. A couple of things that I observed: they seem to grow in profusion on slopes, but not so well on the level ground and that they healthiest plants seemed to be more than 50 cm apart from each other.

Exciting birdwatching at Carkeek Park -- an American dipper visits during the chum salmon run, looking for a feast.
The image for this observation is actually a video! I guess you have to click through to Flickr to see the full video in HD.
Found growing along high traffic area with woodchipped landscaping under low lying plants including creeping buttercup.
Found this guy while hunting for fungi in the arboretum in Seattle.

Juvenile, hanging out by the path. A terrible picture but I did my best. Had distinct white eye rings and white outer tail feathers. Light brown tum with a bib of markings.
