Forest scorpion with young
This gopher was popping his head up when we were having the Juniper overnight.
I knew to go to this location to find this bird (rare for Marin County) from previous reports to eBird. Watched the bird for over ten minutes as it foraged along a fence line repeated perching on various fence posts, then dropping to the ground to capture invertebrates, both along the road edge and among the grasses of the field edge.
