On a mandarinquat tree. Was filled with white powdery stuff when I pulled it off the plant. Not entirely certain on ID. Looks like the fourth photo here:
Stuck to my thumb with surprising tenacity. Rolled up into a ball later.

Pair of Hawks perched on a utility pole... Not a ground squirrel to be seen.
A pair hopping around and stabbing gleefully at where I'd just turned up the soil.
What a survivor -- late in the season, and two bird chomps -- but still flapping!
