Glaucous Winged Gull Flipping Red Rock Crab
The gull dispatched the crab pretty promptly. He flipped the crab onto it's back and then ripped off the legs. One he had leg holes, he ripped open the shell and ate the body of the crab.
Species: Cancer productus (red rock crab), Larus glaucescens (glaucous-winged gull)

Crow In Tree
This was a surprise for me - Around Vancouver we generally get Northwestern Crows, but this is an American crow (slightly larger). The way I can tell them apart is by the hair on their nose.

White Tailed Ptarmigan From Side
I believe this is part way though the molt from winter (white) to summer (like the rock).

Stretching A Wing
This surprised me. You can see one leg is off the branch too. Sad about the lighting, but with wildlife, you rarely get to choose.

Sitting Puffed Up
Given that he was in the sitting phase of his day, he really was quite animated. I thought at this point he would get up and fly away, but he just moved a bit and continued with napping.

Crows Opening Tent
We named this crow "Bob". He took lots of time trying to find his way into things. When he did find food, he came by our camp site and hid his prize under a ground sheet.
Species: Corvus brachyrhynchos (American Crow)

Campground Crow
He wasn't completely tame, but he didn't mind people around or us watching him trying to break in.
