I am pretty certain this is a Sharp shinned hawk, sorry for the poor quality image, that was the best I could do.
Seen while on a long walk on the first day of 2015.

In search of food
Ground Spider found on my kitchen counter this morning. So "where" was this guy while I slept? Underbelly picture also included.
Bewick's Wren taking a break. I have never seen a bird yawn before.
With a flock of geese on the beach.
An osprey from a nest flew to the branch, and then another joined it.
Adult osprey flying in and out of nest to feed the one baby in nest.

Tall yellow flowers were just beginning to bloom when I took this picture. Looked kind of like foxglove, but the wrong coloring...
Easily identifiable throughout the park by the broad maple leaves. Signage on the south walking trail also identifies this tall tree.
This species can be found through out this park. Easily identifiable by the green, waxy, ovate leaves.
Many of these bright yellow flowers have been in bloom for most of the month of May.
Lots of western red cedars in this park, easily identifiable by the scale like leaves.
Lots of stinging nettle right off of the trail. They are quite large now compared to even a couple weeks ago. Some growing as tall as 5 feet.
Lots of Red Huckleberry that you can see right off of the trail. There is even an informative sign that identifies this species on the south roundabout trail.
Found him living in an old straw bale that was rotting.
Saw this on the border of the Native Growth Protection Zone. Have not seen this species in this area befor.
