A rarity for me. A Yellow House Finch on my feeder!
I get to see a Flying Squirrel every night, if I look for them. This photo was taken with the observation camera installed.
2 pelicans, one on shore, the other floating nearby, only one in photo taken from the parking lot near the youth waterfront sports center. There were double crested cormorants on the pier, ring billed gulls on the shore, an American coot and western grebes in the water
3 in the salt marsh/mud flats. They started at the north end when there was no muddy shore, and as the tide went out, moved south
Male, relatively close to the female and her nest, not sure, may be rufous.
Not a native here, likely either planted years ago, or a volunteer. I have successfully grown them from seeds, which are very small, like sawdust from using a medium or fine sandpaper. A hummingbird used this tree for the site and materials to build a nest. There are red flowered native plants here, as well as pink flowered native shrubs.
Female on nest, in Cajeput tree near entrance to the salt marsh. She brought some fluff to line the nest.
Tide receded and exposed more of the mud flats
Male, seen very close to previous observation. Feathers on top of his head were raised, then he regurgitated a pellet, then he lowered the feathers on his head and preened. He was perched on the railing of the 'pier'. Now I have seen a male there, and a female, not at the same time.
California Maidenhair is the other fern in this photo .
In the native garden adjacent to the north end of the parking lot
Tide was going out and rocks were exposed, Cabrillo inner beach, near the outlet of the salt marsh and boat launch ramp
Female? The more drab bird with the 2 male cinnamon teals.
Species: E. fasciculatum
Found on the side of the coyote trail with surrounding California Sage bushes
Around 3 feet tall and had a massive amount of bees.
2 males near the north shore of the salt marsh, tide was going out and mud flats were growing, not sure if that is a .female with them, or another type of bird
See two to four individuals .
Two individuals were here .
Guessed at ID, noted the stripe on upper neck.
In a rather bare patch within a large stand of mature manzanita
Couldn't find an oak within 50 ft, just bay trees. All of these were coming up in a cluster right next to s bay root
