This is a very small population of a rare flower. The property owners are working on improving the size of the marshland to allow for a greater size of population of this plant. The only other populations are located a bit north in Knights Valley. I am going to try to find them next.
I heard it at first and found it on a support post on my out building. This may be one of my favorite observations since the sequence of pictures does a pretty good job showing the bird doing its head banging thing.
First time using the new add observation program and it wasn't tooooo bad.
Every year I worry the county has done these flowers in with herbicide. So far so good.
This is the only picture I have so the sorrel and poppy come with it for your pleasure.
Some of the largest of these I have ever seen.
My first time seeing these guys.
Not too sure about this one.
I only saw a few of these along the east bound trail from the parking lot. Wonder if it escaped from someones yard.
This is the female of a family of four with two kits, They are living under the floor of our horse barn/chicken coop. So far it has worked having the foxes guarding the chicken house.
I first thought it was a dog from across the street, but soon realized it was a bear going from the parking area to the house. It hung around for about 20-30 minutes looking for things to eat. It found a plum tree and started to go into our garden for the ripening raspberries. It was headed north on the road when I saw it last.
This was my first time seeing a bear. It is probably a young one just kicked out by its mother.
This is the most pregnant deer I have ever seen.
It is all over the yard and I am curious if it is native or not.
