Egg cluster found floating atop giant kelp off rock Pr Lobos shore. Can any one help ID? Eggs noticeably smaller than salmon eggs.

Female Downy Woodpecker spotted in a tree on the road to Rat Hill. Id is based primarily on size and the amount of white on the wing coverts.
Spotted a couple of American Goldfinches this morning at Whalers Cove parking. These are the first that I have seen in the Reserve this year.
Watched this lovely pair of green flecked fence lizards cut tight circles over the trail and into the adjacent brush for 5 minutes; before withdrawing delicately before my zeal for the best shot might break up their proceedings.
This bat perched daily on the same tree 2-3 M above ground from October 14 through 26 Mar 15. It has not been seen since. A hoary bat, presumed to be same individual, was discovered in February 2014 on the same tree mentioned above (Monterey Pine, Pinus radiata) and was seen daily until leaving in late March. We will now be looking for it this fall. Should be very interesting to see it return yet again, likely for its third winter, to the very same tree?! Shall see.
