Found inside a log. Many mushrooms have been coming up in the area due to recent rains.
A pile of feathers left over from a Band-tailed Pigeon snack.
This is the biggest Jerusalem Cricket I have ever seen. Found under a planter box.

Katydid insect on the side of the chicken coop. So beautiful! No, I did not feed this one to the chickens.
I first heard the call of this species and after looking around found it on the pole across the road.
While taking shots of the Pileated woodpecker, I saw another bird fly over to the pole and figured it was the mate of the first one. When I looked at the pic on my computer I found it to be a northern flicker instead that came over to see what the other was up to, I guess.
Some kind of caterpillar or other type of larva found on a creeping manzanita bush.
Seen in grass. Individual had >5 ticks from ear to front leg.
Found in the courtyard of the Dwight Center.
Unharmed but resting- maybe hot a window? Drunk on fermenting berries? Who knows
