Rat sized rodent seen scurrying up a tree. Below the tree was a woodrat nest.
Very abundant locally.
Tiny flies(seen in 2nd. shot) landed on spider and it's prey with impunity.
The one on the right is definitely a blue belly but I don't know what the one on the left is! Some kind of skink or something?
On dead oak
NEED HELP! this bird has very small bill but does not curve down like a western or least sandpiper. The brownish color throws me off and i swear there are black legs. A juv. semi was spotted a few days ago and I'm sorry for the bad shots (foggy). Many western and least to compare which made this bird stick out more than others.
