Several of these observed crawling through leaf litter, seemingly headed towards a nearby creek.
In California bay tree, semi-closed canopy, open understory.
Weird green color. Cold weather approximately 45 degrees.found under old oil can.
Early wildflower in full bloom. In bay-fern forest on dark north-facing slope of Deer Island Open Space Preserve; 10 or so plants blooming and more on the way.
I guess this is agrifolia, but leaves are not turned at edges and hairs underside if any are not distinct. Are these 2-year acorns halfway matured? Hybrid with wislizenii? Or is it wislezinii?
Is this a female or juvenile?
Possibly partial leucism. Or potentially a hybrid with a domesticated Graylag Goose? Other (typical) Canada Geese repeatedly charging this bird and keeping it on the perimeter of the group.
