small, possibly young centipede, insects on a dry leaf in the stump of a fallen tree
Dark brown blackish small soft pinecones, probably water logged, underneath red alder, and doug fir trees in ravenna
small, short, white, individually growing mushrooms.
a ground cover plant that reminds me of a type of moss. thick and slick in texture, and covered a medium sized forest floor area.
a vine like growth of these leaves along the ground
almost looks like a large 3 leafed clover but with slightly rounded serrated edges.
(chickadee pictured in the center)
I think the two trees in this picture (between them is the view of the swamp) are willows. Am I right? I think it may be a Pacific Willow... They obviously are not fully grown
The angles of my pictures aren't great but I believe this is a Steller's Jay
This plant was found along the Union Bay Natural Area path, it was along the water side and there were several of them. The stem is light green with dark brown notches where the leaf-like branches grew from. The branches were thin and light green, looked almost like a firework explosion. I have never seen a plant like this before and was struggling to locate it in my field guide. Any help is much appreciated.
It looks to me as if this is a barred owl, can anyone confirm it?
Unfazed by my presence, (s)he was.
This bird was digging into eroding soil, on a slope, beneath a tree root system, with repetitive pecks while its mate (or what i presume to be its mate) watched above in the tree.
long, spindling vines
Large, oblong leaves. Coarse undersides.
juvenile coniferous tree, sharp needles, no cones
