Since about 1998, I've been noting the mammals, reptiles,
and amphibians observed at Marymoor during my weekly birding surveys. This
list is not as rigorous as my bird list, and my identification skills do not
allow me to list all of the mammals smaller than a chipmunk. I'm afraid I
haven't kept a list of insects or slugs, etc. The following table shows
the number of times we've seen various species in each month of the year.
