Small bird in it's talons (you can see the birds foot in the picture)
Looked eaten on the beach.
With its grey crown and distinctly broadening white eye-stripe, it took some research to convince myself I hadn't found a vagrant Eurasian Warbler.
This is the rarely illustrated juvenile plumage of the Golden-crowned Kinglet. Soon it will develop a distinctive, bright orange-yellow stripe across the top of its head
Gray Jays were very common in the picnic grounds at Patrick's Point State Park in Humboldt County, CA (along with American Crows and Steller's Jays); even hopping onto the table in an attempt to steal some scraps.These individuals dark backs and extensive dark cowls identify them as members of the northwestern subspecies "obscurus"
This patch of Leather ferns was found in a shaded spot of sandy bluff less than 50 feet from the beach.
These Deer Ferns (family Blechnaceae) were very common along stretches of the trail to Agate Beach.
the tiny thing above the grass not the bunny dorid
i think? interesting coloration...so variable w/ these beasts. have seen hancockia w/ similar white blotches betw. the cerata
i think? Behrens mentions white flecks on body, rhinophores.
