Description

I was so surprised to find an Onchidoris bilamellata (Barnacle-eating Nudbranch) in one of my raw oysters at Hama Hama Oyster Company! Fortunately I didn't put any sauce on the little critter, and after consuming the oysters, we returned the nudibranch to the Hood Canal (photo #2).

Description

Hundreds (maybe 800?) of American Wigeons were swimming together, some foraging for sea lettuce, in the Hood Canal. It's unusual to see so many birds together here.
