Incredible experience. Long-tailed weasel had her babies 3 or 4 days ago. Today she moved them from 1 hole to another about 100 feet away that was more secluded. She made 6 trips to carry 8 babies. Twice she carried 2 at a time. She was so gentle. Unbelievable that I got to witness this.

Found right next to a goshawk feather, and many of the feathers had damage that showed the jay struggled a lot before it died (second image shows an example of that, it’s the damage feathers get when rubbed hardly across the dirt). Last image shows part of the kill site. Sadly many feathers were unretrievable, as the forest they were found at was on a steep incline, and any wrong move could end up with me down the hill. Only got what was safe to catch xd

He kept trying to get close to her and even brought her a few treats (insects?) from the grass beneath the fence. She accepted the treats but didn't seem thrilled with the attention. However, when he flew off, she followed him...

Description

This was an extremely rare sighting for Squamish first spotted by Wally Fletcher during the Squamish Estuary Monthly Bird Census. This seal was first sighted in Puget Sound near Seattle Washington earlier in the year then later in Steveston British Columbia where it was tagged on its flipper ( B310 ). It was observed swimming and sunning itself on a wharf at the end of Cattermole Slough near downtown Squamish only for only one day then disappeared. Judging by its normal habitat it was a long way out of range which is the Bering Sea. I have good video of the seal ( You-Tube video https://youtu.be/QO8osHlLzh0 ) if that will help with identification.

Found on the ground on hiking trail. Looking a little beat up. We picked it up to get a better look and noticed some tail feathers missing on the one side. We held it a while as we continued our walk along the trail and gave it a little water. What we where not expecting was she was starting to lay an egg. The other pictures show it. The egg came out broken yoke first then the shell. Only minute after the ordeal she had enough strength and flew off. She was still bulging on the bottom and appeared to have more eggs to lay.
