Caught while electro fishing Grape creek, tributary to Dry Creek of Russian River
The largest Baldfaced Hornet nest I have ever found!
This was an amazing observation about 150 BTP feeding under a Coast Live Oak making a ton of noise in the dry leaves. I tried to get closer and they exploded out from all around the tree for about 3-5 minutes.
Injured bird. High population of varied Thrushes overwinter on this property.
Growing on an Oak tree.
Fruiting bodies associated with Sudden Oak Death, (SOD).
Very fresh (24 hours) wild pig rooting.
This looks like a solo pig in the area. Solo hogs are almost always Boar hogs!
