This is pretty horrible but... interesting. A King Snake (the second one we saw) returned to the pond area and somehow grabbed a lizard, and ate it. I was lucky to be there with my camera but felt sorry for the little herp - I like lizards
Strangely, the wild birds were coming VERY close to the snake, even hovering over it as though they were going to strike it and these were small birds of varying types. I don't know if they're curious or threatened but they aren't very smart! That King Snake is fast." - Virginia Tucker

"New King Snake visiting on July 10th, 2014. We think it was the same snake as the first one we saw. It had a different pattern than the second, which I could compare in the photos. We handled it just enough to get good pics, then it went back up the hill towards the Live Oaks and chaparral. Clearly, they keep coming to the same area for food and drink. I've seen dozens of lizards as well but they're harder to get photos of." - Virginia Tucker

I know this is a very old observation...but owls used to nest in our yard every year. 2005 was the last, and I have not seen one here since.

"The first King Snake we found was in our green grass in the front yard, right near where my children were sitting. They were surprised but not afraid of it. The photo isn't great but we could see enough to tell it had a different pattern, slightly, from the second one we found. I think they were heading towards my Ringneck Dove aviary, so I brought them in at night for a while." - Virginia Tucker

"The Natural History Museum of LA County on Facebook sent me to you, suggesting that I email you this photo I took today of what they told me was a Western Skink with two tails. It is in my backyard, and we put it on a bowl for a photo. It was in bricks along the edge of my yard, close to the sprinklers." - Virginia Tucker
