Experts - What is going on here? This male American Kestrel sure did seem to have the hots for this female Merlin. 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...

Rarely-seen true albino Risso's dolphin with its family. "Casper," as some call it, was first seen as a calf in Monterey Bay in 2014. No one has been able to determine if its male or female yet. I have been as obsessed as Ahab trying to see it, so today was a glorious day!

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.

Melanistic juvenile (likely male based on size relative to the Great-tailed Grackle it was feeding upon). Verified by William Clark, and Lance and Jill Morrow. First observed by M. Silvas with me, and I shouted "melanistic Cooper's Hawk, OMG" as I identified the bird preliminarily, before submitting it to experts for review.
