Beautiful echoey howls and yips emanating from downhill. Somewhat haunting.
Stealth bird; being harassed and chased by a western bluebird. Was not in view for more than 20 seconds. called softly a couple times a rapid twittering tititititittititi much like a gray kingbird.
Surfacing about a mile offshore; spotted with scope.
Two swimming near mile rock
One swimming and scaring the waterbirds away
Photo shows 3 or 4
Very poor images. Definitely confirm a squirrel. Not certain they validate my identification. But the squirrel definitely had a reddish/orangish to underpart /tail
I found quite a few chipmunks in this area. I searched for what kind they might be with the CDFG Wildlife Habitat Relations GIS maps and it appears that this population is not mapped. The closest population is the California Chipmunk and therefore that is my working hypothesis.
One adult and one subadult. Images shows both Neotrops and a double crest.
Near adult. Pink legs.
