Maybe this is a song sparrow?

Red-breasted Sapsucker commented on by Glanecia Washington, USA6 years ago

After finding a picture of a juvenile red-breasted sapsucker, and learning that these are the kind of sapsuckers that live in my area (all others are rare, or live east of me), I am quite sure that it's a red-breasted sapsucker.

Thanks JoshuaGSmith ... but after looking up sapsuckers in my area, here's what I found " The red-breasted sapsucker (Sphyrapicus ruber) is
common throughout western Washington, while the rednaped
sapsucker (Sphyrapicus nuchalis) and Williamson’s
sapsucker (Sphyrapicus thyroideus) are found in eastern
Washington. The yellow-bellied sapsucker (Sphyrapicus
varius) is seen occasionally in Washington, but is native to
the eastern United States. " ... I think it looks more like a Yellow Bellied sapsucker ... which is weird ...since it's rare ... the Williamson isn't found in my area either ... but the first one is ... but it doesn't look like that first one at all ... I'm stumped .... but there are birds flying around above me with yellow bellies .. .that may or may not be the same bird

Hmm. I'm pretty sure it's a woodpecker of some kind ... just not sure which kind, or if it's a woodpecker at all

Glanecia Hermit Thrush
Hermit Thrush commented on by Glanecia Washington, USA6 years ago

So, I recently learned that there are two thrushes that are common in my area, the Swainson's Thrush and the Hermit Thrush. The Hermit is often found in my area during the winter, and the Swainson's Thrush is found during summer. That makes sense, because the summer calls I hear are more like the Swainson's song than the Hermit's song.

Wow! I had no idea it was poisonous. We used to pull these out of the ground and throw them like spears, when I was a kid. Just today I was pulling them out and throwing them too, but not because it was a game, because they've grown into the garden. Ugh. At least they're easy to remove.

My guess is that it's a Western Painted Turtle, but I don't know for sure.

Or maybe The Silvery Blue (Glaucopsyche lygdamus) .... this is tough ... when its wings were closed, it looked white-ish ... kind of like the Silvery Blue

Hmm, could this be the "Fender's blue butterfly"? If so, then it's an endangered species.
