The Barrow's Goldeneye (Bucephala islandica) is a medium-sized diving duck, named after Sir John Barrow, an English statesman and writer. The genus name Bucephala refers to the bulbous shaped head and the species name Islandica means Iceland. The male Barrow’s goldeneye has a black and white body, a purplish glossy head, a bright yellow eye with a white crescent at the front of the face. Adult females have a grayish body and yellow bill. The Barrow's goldeneye is a quiet bird that generally only makes grunts, squeaks and croaks during the breeding season and courtship. Their fast-moving wings create a whistling sound while in flight. The Barrow’s goldeneye is migratory and winters in open inland waters or protected coastal waters. They rely on coastal estuaries as important wintering and stopping places on their migration. Their breeding habitat consists of ponds and wooded lakes in North America as well as some locations in eastern Canada and Iceland. They build their nest in tree cavities. The Barrow’s goldeneye diet is made up of crustaceans, insects and vegetation for which they forage underwater. This Barrow’s goldeneye female was photographed in Puget Sound from Vashon Island at Tahlequah, Washington State, USA.

The Surf Scoter (Melanitta perspicillata) is a large North American sea duck native to North America. The male is completely black except for white patches on the forehead and the back of the neck. It has a large orange and white bill and a yellow eye. The female is uniformly brown and has a paler yellow eye. The surf scoter dives for crustaceans and mollusks. Mussels are an important part of their diet. Surf scoters breed in Northern Canada and Alaska and winter along the Pacific and Atlantic coasts. This male surf scoter was photographed swimming in Puget Sound near Vashon Island, Washington State, USA.

The North American Beaver (Castor canadensis) is the second-largest rodent in the world. It is a primarily nocturnal, semiaquatic animal known for creating ponds by building dams. They also build canals and the lodges that they live in. This beaver was photographed while feeding in a pond at the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge near Olympia, Washington State, USA.

Wetlands are an important ecosystem that are permanently or seasonally dominated by water. The primary factor that distinguishes wetlands from other bodies of water is the characteristic presence of aquatic plants adapted to the unique environment. Wetlands play an important role in the environment, including water purification, water storage, processing of carbon and other nutrients and stabilization of shorelines. Wetlands are also home to a wide variety of plant and animal life. This wetland was photographed at the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge near Olympia, Washington State, USA.

The Horned Grebe (Podiceps auritus) is a relatively small North American waterbird. The bird gets its name from patches of yellow feathers located behind the eyes that look like horns. The horned grebe can be easily recognized by its red-and-black breeding plumage or its black-and-white non-breeding plumage. The Horned Grebe is can be found in Eurasia and North America. In North America, it is mainly in the northwestern region of the continent from south-central Alaska to northwestern Ontario. Its breeding grounds includes the Yukon, southern Nunavut and the northwestern states, from Washington to Minnesota. Preferred breeding habitat includes shallow freshwater ponds, marshes, shallow bays with vegetation for nest material, concealment and protection for young. The horned grebe’s wintering range is also primarily coastal from southern Alaska down to the northern Gulf of California. The horned grebes dive underwater using their large feet for maneuverability. They feed on aquatic arthropods, fish and crustaceans. They will also catch insects on the water's surface. This horned grebe was photographed in Puget Sound at Dockton County Park on Vashon Island, Washington State, USA.

The Red-Tailed Hawk (Buteo jamaicensis) is a raptor that is found throughout most of North America. It is one of the most common members within the genus of Buteo. Red-tailed hawks can acclimate to many habitats within their range. They occupy a wide range of habitats including deserts, grasslands, forests, fields and urban areas. In North America the diet of red-tailed hawks often consists of small mammals such as rodents. They may also prey on birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and invertebrates. This immature red-tailed hawk was photographed at the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge near Olympia, Washington State, USA.

Puget Sound is a special body of water that belongs exclusively to Washington State. From the saltwater marshland of Olympia and Nisqually to the windy Strait of Juan de Fuca and the San Juan Islands, Puget Sound exhibits a quiet beauty that is quintessentially Washington. Puget Sound and its adjacent waters form a vast inland extension to the Pacific Ocean. Its complex network of straits, bays, canals and inlets give Western Washington a distinctive personality. Puget Sound along with its surrounding mountains has a major effect on the region's temperate climate. The area was first visited by Europeans in 1792 with British explorer George Vancouver's expedition. Captain Vancouver gave the region many of the place names which are still in use today. Not only does Puget Sound have a rich history, it also has some of the greatest scenery in the country. Sunsets over Puget Sound can be especially beautiful and an inspiration to photographers. This silhouette picture of a young girl was photographed as the sun set over Puget Sound from Saltwater State Park near Des Moines, Washington State, USA.

Point No Point was named by the famous explorer Charles Wilkes during his Pacific Northwest expedition in the 1840's. While exploring Admiralty Inlet, the expedition members spotted a long promontory of land in the distance. Upon reaching the point they discovered it wasn't as large as originally thought so they named it Point No Point. The Point No Point lighthouse, the oldest on Puget Sound, was built in 1879. It is situated near the town of Hansville, Washington State, USA.

The Black Oystercatcher (Haematopus bachmani) is a distinctive black bird with a red bill and red-orange eye that inhabits the rocky shorelines of western North America. It ranges from the Aleutian Islands of Alaska to the coast of the Baja California peninsula. The black oystercatcher is not considered a threatened species; however, it is of high conservation concern throughout its range. Its global population size is estimated between 8,900 to 11,000 birds. The diet of the black oystercatcher consists of a variety of invertebrate marine life that clings to the rocks below the high tide line. This includes mussels, whelks and limpets but rarely oysters. This black oystercatcher was photographed while looking for food among the rocks at Marrowstone Spit in Fort Flagler State Park near Port Townsend, Washington State, USA.

With the advent of radar, GPS and other advanced navigation tools, lighthouses no longer need to perform the same function they once did; guiding ships to safety. Instead, they have been preserved as historic monuments; reminding us of a time when shipping and sailing were more perilous activities. This rustic lighthouse keeper's cottage, adjacent to the Brown's Point Lighthouse, is now used as a museum explaining the history and significance of the lighthouse. The Brown's Point Lighthouse is located in Tacoma, Washington State, USA.
