Prunis like. Fruit seems like a drupe, with one seed fully enclosed in fruit. Fruits are the size of peppercorns. I would really like to know what this is!
Top of telephone pole.
Seen soaring in circles to the north of 101. Almost didn't believe it was real. Flapping its wings, clearly not some man-made thing.
Helminthoglypta nickliniana anachoreta
2 snakes breeding for 3RD day in wood pile.
About 1-1/2" long .
Bright blue underbelly, orange underneath the legs. Black body, dotted with light blue triangular scales.
A small bird about 3 inches tall with distinct black and yellow coloration feeding on a daffodil in a partially urban area close to a small body of water
Found these today while doing yard work. They were under a large planter. One lost part of it tail.
Have always heard that these birds were introduced from Texas & this one looks more like the pix of the Rio Grande subspecies than of the regular wild turkey
