I saw this black bird in a marsh area at 1:05 PM. I couldn't quite get a great picture of it, but I took several, so this will be a nice challenge. I didn't hear it make any calls. Don't get thrown by that whitish reflection on the water in some of the pictures - it didn't have a light colored breast. From my distance it appeared to be about the size of a Northern Mockingbird. I think it may be a Black Rail, but I'm not sure.
Looks wifi wish but no red on abdomen.
This Great Horned Owl caught my eye when it flashed through the woods at Point Pinole in the early evening. It stayed put as I stalked up to it, and I soon learned why: it was on a kill of some fairly large bird. I'd like help IDing the dead bird - the coloring and tail bars make me think it is some kind of small raptor or a dove? Any ideas?

Underneath a planter that was moved. At first glance thought to be an earthworm. Length about 5 inches long.
