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)

Mussels And Barnacles
Probably California Mussels (Mytilus californiensis), growing in with Leaf Barnacle (Pollicipes polymerus). These two spieces usually have large homogenous colonies - so it looks like the Mussels are overgrowing the Barnacle colony.
Species: Mytilus californianus (California mussel), Pollicipes polymerus (Goose Barnacle or Goose Neck Barnacle)

Harbour Seals
Killer whale snacks. This guys looked plump and furry. It's funny that the images look better in the camera (with a hood) than they did when looking in real life (sun in your eyes).
Species: Phoca vitulina (Harbor Seal)
