I’m extremely lucky to live in the Pacific Northwest where there is an abundance of wildlife to photograph and enjoy. I’m even luckier to live in Edmonds, Washington, where I have easy access to much of that northwest wildlife both in my own backyard and just a few minutes away on the Puget Sound waterfront and in the local Edmonds parks and marsh.
The City of Edmonds has just released a new “Wildlife of Edmonds” poster that contains lists and photographs of many of the birds, mammals, fish and other wildlife that live in the area. It also includes habitat information and a great list of ten tips to help protect wildlife and watersheds. I’m excited to have my photo above of a Black-capped Chickadee included on the poster.
Free copies of the poster are available at the Frances Anderson Center at 700 Main Street in downtown Edmonds. A PDF copy of the poster can also be downloaded from the City of Edmonds website. Click on this “Wildlife of Edmonds” link to view or download the poster from there.
