Biota California

Studying the Plants & Wildlife of California

It’s that time of year when the hummingbirds are all over my feeder. I know there are Rufous and Anna’s and there might be a Calliope and a Black-chinned in the mix too. Black-chinned nested here in previous years but they didn’t hang around last year or the year before.

Anyway, here’s a lil clip for your enjoyment!

Bobcat (Lynx rufus) in El Portal, CA.

 

During a field trip with Yosemite Area Audubon Society, we stopped in El Portal to bird. The local bobcat was not interrupted by our activities and was not deterred from the business at hand.

Oh, and you’ll hear a Northern Flicker call towards the end of the video.
