Western Kingbird (Tyrannus verticalis) Tyrannus verticalis

Description

In Vacaville, I saw this bird perched with one other bird on this odd looking plant. It wasn't making too much noise, but seemed to be pretty alert. The day was warm out, and there wasn't many clouds in the sky. The bird was also towards the top of the tree.

Out in Vacaville, I was walking through a field, when I saw this shadow circling above me. I looked up, and saw that this large bird was circling above my head over the field. It was at a medium height in the sky (Not really high, not really low) The air was warm, and there wasn't too many clouds out.

Description

I was sitting out on a porch, looking up at the sky, and this bird passed over. It was pretty fast, so I could only get one picture. It was also flying pretty high in the air. The air was just getting warm, but still had that morning breeze to it.

Wild Turkey Meleagris gallopavo

Description

In Vacaville, I always see this flock of turkeys wondering around. I also can tell when they are coming because they "Gobble" to each-other a ton. These ones I saw in my aunt Kim's garden, trying to find any seeds that fell from the bird feeder. I could not count how many were there, but there seemed to be an equal number of boys and girls. the day was warm out

In Vacaville, I heard a song of qa bird up high in the very top of a tree. There in the tree were two of the same bird. their head was completely red and they were a fairly small bird. They stayed in the tree for awhile, singing their song back to one another. Also, just to point at, there was a bird feeder a few feet away from the tree. The day was pretty hot out as well.

Description

I was at my aunt kims house, walking around down by their barn and I heard something in the bushes. When I looked to the side, I saw a deer staring right back at me. Also, laying down, was a second deer. They were both female, at least I think, and the day was warm out. They stayed only long enough for me to get a few pictures, before they ran off.

California Quail Callipepla californica

Description

I was out in a garden in Vacaville, and I noticed some movement in the bushes near-by. When I looked over, I saw a male and female quail They didn't run away, which surprised me, when I saw them. they waited for me to make the first move, which allowed me to get pretty good pictures. But when I took one more step closer, they ran off into a thicker bush; the male ran in-front of the female. It was a warm day out when I saw them.

Red-tailed Hawk Buteo jamaicensis

Date

May 4, 2012

Description

When in Vacaville, I spotted a beautiful bird flying high in the air. By the color shining through it's tail, I thought it was probably a red-tailed hawk. It was a warm day out when I saw him, and he was flying at a medium high. It wasn't too high where I couldn't get a picture, but it wasn't too low where I could see him clearly.

Wolf Spiders Family Lycosidae

Date

Description

When in vacaville, I spotted this spider scurrying around. it looked as is it had two rows of little tiny (Almost un-seen) dots on its rear end. It's egg-sack (Which it was carrying along with it, by dragging it while it was attached to his butt) looked almost like a white small pebble, but when you looked closer, it looked like a miniature ball of yarn. He was a dark brown color, and was extremely protective of his egg sack. He even tried to go down a crack in the ground, but the egg sack was too big, so he turned around and looked for a different hiding spot. It was a pretty warm day out when I saw him. The spider was also not all too big. It was about the size of a quarter.

In vacaville, I was down by this barn exploring, and a turned up this piece of wood (Like a board that someone would use to build stuff with), and under it there were millions of these termites crawling around. they were coming from a small hole in the ground, and were crawling in steam like lines that branched off from each other. They did actually have order, and were not just crawling any-which-way.

Description

Out by this barn in Vacaville, I lifted up a rock and under it I found a mount of moist dirt that was like a 'clod' of dirt. I broke it apart a bit, and out came this centipede. He was fast, so I could only get one picture, before he crawled underground.

Description

This Friday, I went up to Vacaville. In my aunts trash, I found this little guy. It looked exactly like an ant, but it was yellowish-orange, and it was furry! It was the weirdest thing to see. He was also extremely fast at crawling for such little legs. Also, he wasn't the only one of these I saw. On may 5, a day after I found this one, I saw another one outside by the patio table.
