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

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.
This individual has been in and out of our yard this morning; fluttering everywhere but returning always to lay eggs on some emerging showy milkweed.
We've had great results with milkweed in attracting Monarchs; especially Narrowleaf Milkweed.
Rattlesnake outside Dwight center entrance
Just add Pipevine to your garden, and they will come... very satisfactory. Three or four individuals when I was getting this: all ladies.
Lots of fluttering, stopping only for a second or so; thus not great for photography.
