There are two non-native rabbit/hare species in this area, and no native species. The other possibility is the Domestic Rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus).
A bit of a puzzler. Thamnophis elegans does not usually have red flecks like this in this part of its range; this looks very different from a typical T. elegans from this area. But it has 8 upper labials, and its internasal scales are wider than long and not pointed in front, both of which are diagnostic for T. elegans.
I could only get these two lousy photos of this dark lizard before it vanished down a burrow.
had not been seeing hawks so had to stop and back up to try to take a picture of this one sitting on a wire by the main road through the island
Sea Lion at Deception Pass
species is a guess but I think the genus is right
Are there other green urchins in this area?
I'm identifying the pinkish creature at the bottom here.
The guide told me that these were a type of anemone but I don't recall the name. They were hanging on the underside of these rocks and looked a bit like snot. I was in a kayak so I couldn't get closer. Any thoughts?
Reported sighting: "There's a bunch of harbor porpoise west of Burrows Island. We just left (the island) and the spread of them is quite large; there must be dozens."
There were many of these and they were making lots of noise.
