at road junction; remant of coastal scrub. Hope others will report other locations. This is almost certainly v. albifrons, but I have not keyed out.
The resident mallard pair were well upstream, stirring up silt as they gorged on something in the mud under an overhang. Mallards are the ancestors of domestic ducks. This settled couple -- we think the same for years -- may show why.
Death camas, zigadene (Toxicoscordion, previous Zigadenus), probably T. fremontii but not keyed out. Abundant in meadow and edge of woods.
Meadow above high service road. Not keyed to subspecies
Saw nest only, not rat. Several nests in oak forest.
Common in oak forest
East of service road near Schmidt Lane. Very bold. How does it survive here, with all the dogs going by?
Common in upper meadows; looks like coyotes dig for them.
