In broad daylight, walking South (away from yard with apple and citrus trees and toward another yard with fig tree and citrus) on top of cinder block wall, then turned West and squeezed through gap between wooden fence and chain link fence to yard with orange trees.
A second caterpillar found, approxiimately the same size as the first. This one is also on volunteer flat leaf parsley, approximately 25 feet south of the other one. Both get morning sun, but shade once the sun moves west.
On volunteer, first year flat leaf parsley. I saw an adult nearby recently but did not get a picture.
Got 2 pictures before people appoached and scared him into cover, closer to the shoreline almost on the trail next to the fence, and up the trail 'North/West' of the interpretive center - maybe 100 to 200 feet. Western Fence Lizard or side blotched possibly.
Goose with zip tie still on leg after call to Animal Control, followup with facebook Animal Control who said it is something for their wild animal section to handle. See June 20, July 15, Sept 6 observations.
Found a third bird, went back to check the most recent locations to confirm there were 3. One in a tree, mostly green leaves, second one in a tree with trunk in background, third at the water. Here is the second.
3 Juvies seen today. Adult seen on previous observations, was not seen today.
One watched intently as children threw bread to the ducks/geese/turtles. This one picked up a stick, dropped it in the water, picked it up again, dropped it. I have heard of green herons using tools to fish, maybe that is what he was doing. He is standing on a 'bridge' made of a log, with just a little water flowing over it into a lower section of the 'creek'.
This plant started growing in one of my pots. I did not plant it, but decided to keep it because I thought it was fascinating. It is now somewhere between 6 and 7 feet tall and still growing!
Possibly a young lady bug.
Larger one, adult, released after the 3 smaller ones.
Confirmed ID- see facebook post by MMCC about today's release. 3 smaller ones released today after time in rehabilitation by Marine Mammal Care Center, only 2 photographed, the third remained in his carrier a few seconds longer. The first one in the picture got a head start, but the second one caught up very quickly.
Not sure of ID. Banded young gull. ID begins with 104 and ends with 4.
7 gulls were released on Thursday at this location.
20, maybe more flying in general NW direction, a couple splashed into the water hunting
