We found this bunting singing in a pine tree on the Coyote Wall hike. This was a neat new species for me, though it's probably pretty boring for anyone from the west. Lovely species, even if it is a bit obscured.

Seen on the Coyote Wall hike. I'm pretty sure (not 100%) that this is one of these two duskywing species. If anyone can ID it, that would be awesome.

The next day we had nice weather and went hiking at the Coyote Wall, on the Washington side of the Columbia Gorge.
This damselfly landed on my pant leg; I don't have a book for western species, so I'm hoping I can get an ID.

Description

There are 4 mysterious specimen of shield fern, Polystichum sp., obviousely falsly identified as P. andersonii preserved at:

Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle, Paris (France)
Collection : Vascular plants (P), Specimen P01493097 to P01493100

The leaves are very similar to European P. aculeatum, so i suspected for a while, the collector W.N. Suksdorf (born in Germany) might have introduced it to Washington, US.

P01493099 and ....100, referring to this report are labelled: Washington's Flora. Klickitat County. Aspidium aculeatum Sw. fa. robustum Underw., Falcon Valley, W.N. Suksdorf VIII 08.

http://coldb.mnhn.fr/catalognumber/mnhn/p/p01493097
http://coldb.mnhn.fr/catalognumber/mnhn/p/p01493098

Unfortunately the collection's location is given very unprecisely, it could as well be identic with the sample of the year before (....97 + ....98).
Suksdorf's self-created term "Falcon Valley" has revealed to be situated in the Camas Prairie - Conboy Lake area.

This specimen could be big grown P. californicum with nearby fully bipinnate fronds, or some luxurating hybrid, i guess rather with P. braunii than andersonii.

It deviates from typical P. californicum in clearly shortened lowest pinnae, seeming more obtuse in some cases.
