Salish Sea Bird ID Time! _ Featuring: Rhinoceros Auklet _ Zoom in and you can see a “horn.” Both males and females have this horn. If you have any guesses as to the function of this horn let us know because according to scientists, it is still unknown! _ Their breeding population is estimated to be around 922,000 birds. _ ID Tip: Horn and two white plumes. These birds are often confused for non-breeding plumage Tufted Puffins, but in our area Tufted Puffins would only be wearing their brilliant breeding plumage. _ Post your favorite Rhinoceros Auklet picture tag us! Use #thesalishseaschool and #guardiansofthesea _ Fact credit: If you want to learn more or listen to their calls, check out allaboutbirds.org! _ Photo credit: @thesnootyhooty #Anacortes #marineconservation #guardiansofthesea #highschool #enrolltoday #marineecology #tuftedpuffin #anacorteshighschool #mountvernon #skagitvalley #skagitriver #thesalishseaschool #environmentaleducation #getoutside #anacorteswashington #anacorteswa #anacorteshighschool #salishseabirds #classroomwithoutwalls #natureschool #salishsea #thesalishsea #washington #education #cascadia #ocean #seabirds #srkw #commonloon #rhinocerosauklet

A quick note to let you know we are thinking of you. We hope you and yours are healthy and adjusting well to life's new schedule and routine. _ We thought we might turn a few of these lemons into lemonade and develop a way for you to get to know your local marine life while you are spending more time outdoors. _ So, we've created a very fun Salish Sea Bird Identification Guide to be used widely throughout our area. _ True to our mission of empowering students and citizen scientists, we have also created a Bird Survey for you to complete to report your sightings to us. _ Furthermore, there are some fun activities and projects for you and/or your kids to complete. This is open and adaptable to kids of ALL ages. _ Once these projects are completed, e-mail them to us and we will send you a Salish Sea School reward. You can do as many as you'd like! Bonus points for completing all reward projects listed (see instructions on Bird ID Guide). _ If you can't print the Bird ID Guide or Bird Survey at home, please get in touch and we will happily put one in the mail for you. _ We can't wait to hear about your Salish Sea Birding adventures! _ Please watch the video in our profile for more information. Then, click on the "Bird ID Guide" link below to access the ID Guide and Surveys. _ It was made with Fidalgo Island in mind, but the birds can be found throughout the Salish Sea. _ Stay Well and Stay Curious! #Anacortes #marineconservation #guardiansofthesea #highschool #enrolltoday #marineecology #tuftedpuffin #anacorteshighschool #mountvernon #skagitvalley #skagitriver #thesalishseaschool #environmentaleducation #getoutside #anacorteswashington #anacorteswa #anacorteshighschool #salishseabirds #classroomwithoutwalls #natureschool #salishsea #thesalishsea #washington #education #cascadia #ocean #seabirds #srkw #commonloon #tuftedpuffin

We were graced with a few precious moments with the Southern Resident orcas last night!! This is what it is all about. Providing students with a better understanding of the marine ecosystems they depend upon and how they can help. We can’t wait to get you onboard this summer! . . . . Note: 'Be Whale Wise' Practices were followed during the duration of our encounter. These photos were captured using a telephoto zoom lens that extends 600mm and then further cropped and enhanced for detail. Grateful for our incredible photographer 📸 @thesnootyhooty . . . #Anacortes #marineconservation #guardiansofthesea #highschool #enrolltoday #marineecology #anacorteshighschool #mountvernon #skagitvalley #skagitriver #thesalishseaschool #environmentaleducation #anacorteswashington #anacorteswa #anacorteshighschool #southernresidentkillerwhales #classroomwithoutwalls #transients #salishsea #thesalishsea #washington #education #orcas #ocean #j27 #j36 #j26 #j16 #srkw #oceans #hewesboats

Today was another fantastic day of curriculum development! We encounted two beautiful, male, Bigg's orcas (marine mammal eaters). We matched their distinct dorsal markings and saddle patches with an ID guide from Center for Whale Research Their names are T77A "Saul" and T124C "Cooper." ________ Our programs are designed to connect student participants to the magnificent marine life in our waterways and to equip them to become advocates for the Salish Sea (and our oceans!). We can't wait for summer to begin! ________ Note: 'Be Whale Wise' Practices were followed during the duration of our encounter.

We went out to practice our seabird curriculum with our volunteer naturalist and seabird expert, Amanda Colbert! Beautiful pic of this common loon on its way to his breeding plumage (shedding his dull winter plumage for the black with white spots and eventually very bright red eye)! Look out lady loons! 📸@thesnootyhooty #Anacortes #marineconservation #guardiansofthesea #highschool #enrolltoday #marineecology #summer2020 #anacorteshighschool #mountvernon #skagitvalley #skagitriver #thesalishseaschool #environmentaleducation #getoutside #anacorteswashington #anacorteswa #anacorteshighschool #anacorteshighschoolptsa #classroomwithoutwalls #natureschool #salishsea #thesalishsea #washington #education #cascadia #ocean #seabirds #srkw #commonloon #oceans
