I'm not 100% certain, but I think that's Alder. It's also a piece that's spalted (Partially rotted) and ripple grained too. Should make for a very nice bowl so long as the timber doesn't tear out too badly. It's hard to tell exactly what it is since it's spalted as well as being a bit rough.

From the top pic on my phone the bark supports alder but the wood looks a little on the light side. Could you post a better picture of the bark?
