Gathering spider silk, maybe? She was very interested in the underside of this fence ledge.
One of many clumps on a big Flowering Pear (street tree).
Pair eating Swiss chard.
With an acorn.
What is this thing? It's been calling most nights. I've listened to every nighthawk, nightjar, and owl in range on allaboutbirds.org, and none of them sound like this.
Calls at about 7 seconds, 19, and 33. The last second is loud from my hand on the button, sorry.
Scaly top, bruises yellow, dry top, small mammal chew marks. Growing on wood chips at Stanford campus (outside Memorial Church). Possibly Agaricus?
