Description

Not sure at all. Very small, glossy black, round, hard-shelled (?), legs like a tick. Latched on to my dog above her eye. Thought a large flea at first. I picked it out and she had a definite small bite. I had it in the palm of my hand for a bit and thought it might be dead, as the dog is on Revolution for flea prevention. I put it in a ziplock bag and the realized it was still crawling about. It reminds me of a tick (leg-wise), but not. I would guess it measures about 0.100”. Suggestions are Lone Star Tick, but it looks glossy and hard.

Twittering vocalizations
Three flew within two feet of our faces. Around for about ten minutes.
The pic with my compass info is probably more accurate than what I tried to locate on the map in this app. Very excited to have seen these lovely birds! Had no chance to grab my real camera so I included the pics from a field guide.

Rick Wood spotted a Mountain quail at the feeder station in my our back yard. Vocalization in the brush nearby. I thought I heard one vocal last Saturday and wondered if they were back. Multiple sightings last year and many pictures my husband and I captured as well. Last year we enjoyed watching a pair, and eventually their brood on almost a daily basis. Uncommon here. Very excited for the return! Hopefully much more to come. The pictures are from last May in the same location.
