Staghorn Sculpin to be a little more specific. Leptocottus armatus. I wonder
if that has changed. Scientific names are supposed to be so much better for
accurate communication but they are changing so often lately, who can keep
up and be a clear communicator?

Hello Tweeters,

Yesterday Bill went down to Edmonds pier and happened to be
there at high tide while there were a number of cormorants and grebes
feeding. I put some of these pictures on Flickr. I believe the eel-like
fish are gunnels, but there are two different colors of these fish. Then
there is some really spiny fish. Does any bottom fish aficionado know if
that's a sculpin the DC Cormorant is eating?

The pictures in question are the first seven or eight in the album. Beyond
that you are into general pictures at or near the Edmonds waterfront.



Happy birding, Charlotte Byers, Edmonds
