Spotted hopping around empty flower pots next to a blue house about 7' from the campfire. It was bright green with lighter edges and dark stripes along his edge and around the eyes. The feet had a hint of orange and there maaay have been 2 or more yellow spots on the head and elsewhere. Didn't seem to like people. Sun was just setting and about mid 50d.

Found in a cup that used to have soda in it on the counter. Almost frozen because he was so cold inside so I took him outside in the sun. He seemed very thankful and let me pet his back before flying away in less than 5 min. His body was fuzzy and soft with yellow and dark brown stripes. His wings were a light brown with dark veining.

Leaves are just blooming with one flower present. I picked it and stomped it to shreds because scotch broom is terribly invasive. On the cliff overlooking the Narrow's Bridges. Just off the grassy path with Salal, Douglas fir, Himalayan blackberry and madrone. Weather was bright, sunny with fun puffy clouds and ~63•F. Tide is freaking ripping, at Least 5 knots.

When I opened my bedroom window, a bat about the size of a large grapefruit (incl. Wings) flew past. The house has a strip of lawn along this side about 8 feet wide with a forested (madrone, aldar, salal, sword fern, etc.) cliff below. The bat was heading for the front yard which has apple, cherry, pear and plum trees. The bat was also too quick for me to get a photo.
