Description

Would love to know exactly what these snails (commonly called "whelks") are. I didnt take the photo for ID purposes so I realize it's not great. They are very common I'm sandy and muddy estuaries, and I am assuming they are all the same species but could easily be wrong.

I dont know if anyone can tell what this bird is from the bad quality photos. It looks to me like a Brown Creeper which are only in the SI. I thought maybe a female tomtit or a juvenile robin... I dont know! Cute though
