Female Salmon spotted in Lagunitas Creek, near Sir Francisc Drake Blvd, Tocaloma, near Olema CA
On side of Olema Marsh hiking trail. Jules Evens lead the hike and let us know that the inside liquid of this plant will calm stinging nettle.
Four otters (two pictured) swimming on the North bank of the Lagunitas river.
Found on plate glass inside house. Underside pale and nondescript.
We heard this bird for a good 15 minutes, but couldn't get a look at it. Just when I had given up hope, it swooped over the trees behind us as we were looking for otters in the creek. It even turned and flew upriver right in front of us. The build up of anticipation made this a really satisfying moment.
