This old dairy barn's owl box has been used for many years by Barn owls. This year I saw these three owlets in it & a parent flew out as I peeked in. Also pictured is a recently deceased owl just outside the barn. Am guessing it was a 4th owlet who was preyed on.
This tree is just full of these 4 petals flowers. They look to be about 2-1/2" across.
This may be a non-native but it looks to be establish.
This Oak tree was full of Oak-balls.
This is a colorful bush with red and white flowers.
Or Oregon white?
2 different species, obviously. Guess I forgot to push"save"in between.
Yellow flies on cow poo
This one was chattering loudly. I think I came too close to their nest, since I was hearing a softer chattering in nearby brushy area.
Found on SSU trail by pond.
Red eyes and black body with white spots.
Apparently a rare plant but quite common on the preserve. Only flowering on the exposed roadside with lots of sun.
On a longer stem in a redwood/douglas fir forest floor.
