Two canada geese spotted with a baby swimming near the shore of Lake Washington.
Found in the arboretum. Two male of what I believe to be shovelers swimming and diving for food near the shore.
Ducklings following its mother on a side walk, near the fountain.
These gulls were on the lawn outside by George cafe on the UW campus looking for food scraps. They seemed to be waiting for people to leave their tables. They have an impressive wingspan and strong, sharp beaks. I have seen them dropping shells onto hard surfaces while in flight in order to access the meat inside.
I saw this brood of ducklings near the Drumheller Fountain at UW Seattle. There was also a few full grown mallards. I assume that the pictured female is the mother, as the ducklings seemed to be following her.
A male and female mallard taking a swim near the coast of the Union Bay Natural area at the University of Washington. As observed from a nearby trail the female duck also began to dive for food in the water as the male mallard casually floated in the water doing nothing on this marvelous, sunny day.
A male and a female mallard. The male displaying the typical color patterns, with a bright green head followed by a black neck, a sort of brown-white integrated body, and a deep blue tail feather area. The female is smaller, with a more bland body color, mostly browns and whites. The female was fishing while the male just floated next to it.
Landed right next to us on a very small island on Lake Washington. Initially heard the characteristic heron squawk, and with its long neck and long reddish-brown legs, being a sort of grey-blue color. Quickly flew off after I took the picture.
Spotted a blue heron in union bay natural area perched in the middle of a pond. It was by itself but there were other individuals nearby. The area around it was dominated by grasses and cattails
