An underweight adult male CA Sea Lion rested on the Alki boat dock for 2 days, occasionally taking short swims. He was not on the dock this morning. Seal Sitter volunteers monitored the situation with SR3 staff. The Sea Lion was occasionally vomiting and some minor coughing was noted. In Lincoln Park in West Seattle two Barred Owl fledglings were observed. This is the first successful owl fledglings since 2009. The young owls were developing well and flying improved daily. The mom was observed feeding the fledglings rats. The female also was observed catching and eating a squirrel. Fauntleroy Park also has a pair of Barred Owl fledglings. Cooper's Hawks in the WDG have at least one offspring in the nest, possibly two.
