Photos By Shawn and Malia Weigelt

Fort Worden State Park, Washington
My wife, Malia, and I combined to get these two photos of this Northwestern Crow. While we were parked and eating our lunch at Fort Worden State Park, this guy showed up on a fence nearby, perhaps waiting for a handout. Northwestern Crow’s are noticeably smaller than their American Crow cousins and generally have a lower pitched voice. They are only found along the coast from Washington north to Alaska. We had a great day at Fort Worden with our kids, enjoying the beaches and the Port Townsend Marine Science Center. Interestingly enough, the movies, “An Officer and a Gentelman,” and, “The Ring,” were both filmed (at least in part) at Fort Worden.
