about 1.25" long including legspan
Several of these snails were found in an oak woodland between 8:00 and 10:00 pm during a day and night of intermittent showers,
Just a few of the estimated 64 Snowy Plovers on the beach at Carmel Lagoon this morning.
A complete checklist of birds seen can be found here:
this agitated (apparently, as it was vocalizing practically non-stop) hawk was acting like it had chased off a red-tail (who casually set off from its perch into a thermal a bit before this individual took flight)
this red-tail was interloping in red-shoulder territory- see other post for agitated red-shoulder who took flight shortly after this individual took off
Took this at a field workshop
Appear to have been banded...
Need some help with this one. Thanks.
They were riding thermals directly over my house today, I couldn't resist.
munching on a tasty meadowhawk then a bit later looking nice and relaxed
