This fly (?) appeared inside our home.
I remember running into this mother duck with her ducklings and I worried about their safety because of all the traffic in the area. They might live near the Venice canals which is fairly close.
I caught this squirrel on camera on his or her way to my backyard. They're always digging holes back there so the can bury their peanuts.
Here is a close up photo of the female dove who has a nest in the huge cactus in front of my house.
A female dove sits on her nest perched on the cactus outside my front door. In this photo you can distinctly see what I'm assuming is the male dove who is acting as a lookout and providing the female dove with protection as she prepares to lay her eggs.
This is only one of the many squirrels who lives near my house. They dig holes in my yard and bury their peanuts. I have no clue where they are getting these peanuts. I have seen 5 or 6 of these squirrels at once climbing various trees, and running across rooftops.

A few of these birds were eating some sort of seed pods in a tree along the bluff. I didn't believe my eyes at first. I'm guessing these are descended from released captive birds.
