Very sought-after county bird for most of us. It has been wintering here with a flock of Eurasian Collared Doves, but is very difficult to find.

Sitting on eggs. Although you cannot separate this bird from a female Rufous by looking at it, this is the only Selasphorus that nests in the county.

Found 12 of these in a 10'x10' area. All a bit over 1cm long.

They each seemed determined to stick to one spot, come hell or low tide. Several were completely out of the water and just bubblegum-pink blobs, gravity not being a sea slug's friend. One was quite far up from the water and stuck upside-down to algae, so I plucked it off and put it back in the water, whereupon it unfurled and crawled very slowly away. The unfurling slug is photos 2, 3, & 4; the rest are all different individuals.

So this is why it is called a Lancetooth! What's the hole underneath the 'tooth' in the alternate photos?
