Found this growing in my bark pathway. Because of the pretty red stems, I potted it up to see if I could figure out what it might be. I have lots of Japanese maples in my yard, a couple sycamore maples, and tons of big leaf maples. This doesn't look like anything currently growing for me, so must have been planted by the birds. If I can figure out what it is and how big it will get, I may (or may not) keep it. Thanks.

Maybe the Norway Maple - Acer platanoides? But there might be many maples in the US I don't know about..

I would let it develop more, the leaves might not show yet the adult form..

More likely maybe a Sugar Maple Seedling - Acer saccharum
It looks a lot like this one but unfortunately cannot enlarge the pic..

Thanks, it is growing happily in its gallon pot, I'll see what develops and post more pictures as it matures a bit more.

I searched for all Maples that grow in Washington and the seedling that matched the best was Acer platanoides, that Myriam suggested.
