Description

About an inch long, they move similarly to a caterpillar. They were in a can of water with rooting plant cuttings. Maybe 1/2 inch long. Insect life stage larva? Fly maggots? I added a photo with a couple moved onto white paper.

Description

A strip of skin, in the middle of the lawn, possibly a raptor ate a meal on the power pole above a nearby fig tree. There have been rodent feces (approximately 1/2 inch long) below the tree, and partially eaten fruit. My guess is a rat.
Other possibilities are mouse, squirrel, or a rabbit from fields/hills nearby.

Larger, maybe a couple of years old. I have seen some little ones near Marine Mammal Care Center recently, but haven't had a camera out much.
Overall, this year I have not seen nearly as many Lizards (SAL or WFL) as past years.

I lifted the landscape edging laying atop the block wall. This is Terra. Her back has some brick red (terra cotta) scales. Are still has her tail and is medium size. Her belly looks big. There was a second lizard very close to there a few days ago, but it's tail was regenerating. This year I only found 2 couples.

Will iNat use the video from my camera to add an observation that includes sound? Its not a smart camera. this is the warbler in the observation I enterer a little while ago so you can see better pictures there. No, it didn't like the .mov format. I will try to find a way to save as a sound format file or convert it. used freefileconvert.com to save as wav but iNat doesn't seem to like that format either

sorry for the bad lighting. This bird twitters loudly and I haven't been able to get a good photo till now. I tried to match him with field guides but didn't find a match for yellow breast, white under tail, wings without bars, eye arcs. His tail is narrower near the body.
