    Just now on my lunch break while sitting on a bench overlooking the bay...

    Peeping commotion overhead, look up to see an osprey evading a bald eagle, with a crow heckling them both from a few body lengths behind. They dogfight for maybe a minute, smaller osprey pulling some good maneuvers and holding its own... second eagle comes in fast from the side, forcing a couple desperate maneuvers from the osprey before it finally drops its fish... eagle does a barrel roll and catches the fish mid-air, 40 feet above the water. Both eagles fly together to a big spruce on the shore and are eating the score now.

    Impressed by the teamwork, and by the osprey's flying ability with the mass of his catch.

    I've seen the osprey really struggle to gain altitude with a big fish but never saw one give up and drop it because it was too heavy.

    I had to drive down to sacto yesterday--on old 40 between Donner Pass and Soda Springs there were thousands of butterflies, heading south. I must have killed dozens. Heading back today they were crossing the freeway between Kingvale and Soda Springs as well as old 40. No idea what kind they are. I've seen swarms before but never this many.

    also far off but caught this coyote in the field - maybe with another juvenile or carrying something? couldn't tell definitively

    A few critters from this weekend's bike ride


    Biggest scorpion I've seen yet




    Got buzzed by this guy on and off for 10 mins




    Had been thinking I hadn't seen a rattler in quite a while. Soon as that thought crossed my mind I almost ran over this guy's head

    99% of the rabbits have died in the San Juan Islands in the past few weeks, there were thousands and you'd see them everywhere now you may see one . Over on San Juan Island they brought in red foxes to cut down on the number of rabbits but it only resulted in an overpopulation of foxes.

    Sounds like the mongoose in Hawaii. Humans are so freakin' stupid. Can learn to leave well enough alone.

    We are having a banner rabbit year here in W2. 10 years ago there were as many as there are this year but in the intervening years their numbers dwindled. Ebb and flow.....
