Three views of West Seattle wildlife to share – first, from Patrick McCaffrey, a pileated woodpecker – and then from Melanie Dixon, her backyard screech owl, “just before taking off after prey”:

Seal Sitters hasn’t had an off-season yet this year. (Many of their adventures and challenges are chronicled on their “blubberblog” site.) Meantime, thanks to everyone who shared photos – send ’em any time! (Or share via the West Seattle Blog group on Flickr.)
ADDED 7:42 PM: One more Lincoln Park photo – a barred owl, seen and photographed there by Kate:
… which reminds us that West Seattle naturalist Stewart Wechsler has two owling walks on his calendar, just days away.
