Stunning moths, animal tracks, other PAWS updates

    This wavy-lined emerald was among the many attractive moths found on the PAWS campus.

Wildlife breeding activity on the PAWS campus in Lynnwood steadily decreased from late June through mid-August. Although they were still around, the birds on campus were much less visible during this time. As the temperatures climbed above 80, they also shifted their activity patterns toward the very early morning and later in the evening when the air was cooler. In other words, there are fewer bird photos in this edition of the Campus Update than in past issues, but there was still much of interest to be found on campus over the last several weeks.
