Dried dead in road
In ephemeral creek bed on Madrone Trail, Fairfield Osborn Preserve; invasive
Kind of looks like Autostichidae or something similar like Oegoconia novimundi - Four-spotted Yellowneck. Landed on my desk, very tiny. 5mm
My first thought was that it was a red shouldered hawk because there a been a juvenile hanging out in the area all summer. But it looks like this is a redtail cause if you zoom in, well, it has a red tail.
