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?

ID by Tom Carlberg, who told me to be on the look-out for this....and I promptly blanked when I saw it...
Observed this western bluebird in a pyracantha tree in Bayfront Park, a dog park in Mill Valley, CA. It appeared to be traveling with a flock of Pacific slope flycatchers. I didn't have a camera with me, only an iPhone, so the image is poor, but the bluebird against the red berries was exquisite to behold.
We think that's what you?

Volunteering from an ornamental planting across the street.
I was in vacation at San Francisco California. I went to a nearby city named Sausalito, there I found this gull, at a park. It was kinda sunny but not to much near a bay.

Fuzzy picture of a male in non-breeding plumage.
I took soil from mountain lake park and this grew out after I planted my pudica mimosas for 5 months. It's got extensions on its stem
