Found this bird kill this afternoon in the area where I regularly see and hear Wilson's Warblers, and no other mostly yellow small birds. A pair of Cooper's Hawks nests nearby and my best guess is that it is a Wilson's Warbler, killed by a Cooper's Hawk. I know it may be asking a lot for others to take this to species, based on this group of feathers. Breast feathers dominate. I didn't take separate shots of any wing or tail feathers, that were there, and may be visible in the background, but I'm afraid I wasn't thinking about those details at the time I took the photo.

Not 100 percent sure of the species of Hesperia. This was the only photo I could get, but before I got my camera, I saw what I call the "zig-zag" silvery spots on the ventral hind wing that I distinguish Hesperia genus Skippers by. My first Speyeria in Seattle in over 20 years of looking. I saw it nectar on Tellima grandiflora - Fringe Cups. Also a species of plant I don't know I have seen a butterfly nectar on before. Hesperia colorado - Western Branded Skipper seems the most likely. While it didn't seem any bigger than our other than our common local orange Skipper of the same size and shape, the Woodland Skipper, that species wouldn't fly until July, and wouldn't have the silvery zig-zag marks on the ventral hindwing that I saw. The size suggests that it would be too small for a Juba Skipper.

This is part of a colony started about 2005 with seed from the foothills of the NE Olympic Mts, to re-establish the species in Seattle, with plants setting seed and dying every one to 3 years. So all of the plants are now self seeded for an average of 7 generations, fitting iNaturalist's definition of "wild".

Same Bumble bee as the last, still nectaring on -Short-styled Thistle - Cirsium brevistylum, but I couldn't figure out how to use the app, and add a photo in the field to the original observation.

Found under a log, at the edge of a wooded wetland, then carefully shooed back into its little hole under the log, so it wouldn't be hurt when its log roof was carefully put back in place.
