Multiple coyotes, such as on this recording, are frequently heard in the Lobos Creek Valley area. This clip was recorded through a window at the designated map point, however, the coyote vocalizations originated to the south of that point, closer to Lobos Creek.

A few Small hairs on margins, per Tom Carlberg, who also said that this wasn't a good example

On fallen twig underneath an Oak tree.

Prior comment from Tom Carlberg..."There's three common species of Ramalina in California that have apothecia: R. leptocarpha, R. puberulenta, R. menziesii. The second is minutely hairy, the last forms nets, and the first is in your photo. There's also R. dilacerata, but it's not known (yet) from the Bay Area. It has main branches that are partially hollow." So R. puberulenta because of the minute hairs, right?

this is one wild looking Ramalina. It was just too high above me to get good close up pix, so I'm not sure I have a correct ID here.

round, bushy, with abundant apothecia mostly on the ends of the strands. Many apothecia are cup-like with an indentation in the center...

on ground under tree. There appears to be a point of attachment (back view), which appears to have some bark

Not sure what this is. First time seeing anything like this.
