Description

A heavy rain fell about 9 weeks ago and the ocotillo responded by sprouting their leaves -- most were in leaf this weekend, many with red flowers. This one was starting to turn color and would soon drop its leaves, the western version of the fall color change.

A huge number of barrel cacti were eaten at the base in this area surrounding the lower part of the wash from Glorietta Canyon. There was a lot of rabbit poop surrounding at least some of them, implying that rabbits were the main predators here.

The stems got eaten more and more during my hike, so I ended up taking pix of six plants. The last ones in this series were completely girdled, yet the tops looked fine. The cacti were saved by having vascular tissue in the center of the barrel, instead of at the edges.

First 5 photos of this Leucistic Hummingbird are from June 28, 2017, first sighting in Palm Desert, CA. The last 4 photos are from August 16, 2017. This gorgeous creature is so friendly with a huge personality. It comes when called and eats one gnat after another with so much to say! I feel he/she likes the yard because the concrete walls and house are painted bright white making this hummer feel protected. Keep in mind there are no feeders on the property. 1. Can you please help me identify the type of Leucistic this is. 2. Male or female? 3. Does this Hummingbird look healthy? I've noticed possible missing feathers on its wings. I'm not sure if it has worsened over time.Thank you :) all photos are mine and taken by me, Nicole Campanaro
