This appears to be a Glaucous-winged x American Herring Gull hybrid, a common hybrid of the Pacific Northwest. Overall suggests herring gull but primaries and tail too pale. Thick bill and overall head shape suggest American Herring Gull and point away from Thayer's Gull.
Raspier voice than "traditional" American Crow, and a fair bit smaller than that species. If Northwestern Crow is a true species, then this should be an example.
tried to extract cellobiase from it....what a mess, never, ever again.
Mycena sp? Deception Pass State Park, Washington
Lots of red-flowering currant blooming all over at Deception Pass!
I know the photo isn't good, but we sat with them overhead for 30 minutes or more and I was able to see them with binoculars too. This was my first time seeing bald eagles and it was really amazing. I knew they were large birds, but seeing them up close really made an impression on me.
