This observation is for the Hermit Thrush in the foreground. This recording was taken near the lake where there's a lot of bird activity.

Other birds: There is a Say's Phoebe call in the distance at about 15 secs, and a California Thrasher call starts at about 1:07. Also, some Acorn Woodpeckers.

Once the light is fading, Baby Owl takes their turn looking out of the box for a while, really getting their groove on (I know, it's a vision thing, but still funky). This night, this baby flew out, and a second baby looked out!

Some rather scruffy-looking Common Mallow (Malva neglecta), photographed in a patch of mulch at Varian Park in Cupertino, CA. Note that there are two photographs in the set of poctures documenting this specimen - the lead shot (Shot 1.1), which provides a view of the plant in situ; and the remaining shot (Shot 1.2), which provides a closeup of one of the flowers and some surrounding leaves.

In identifying this plant, I made the following observations:

1) This specimen has bisexual flowers consisting of 5 sepals; 5 petals, a single pistil, and numerous stamens. The 5 petals are partially fused together to fom a corolla tube that is radial in its symmetry. The pistil has a superior ovary at one end 5 linear stigmas at the other. Finally, the stamens' filaments have fused together around the pistil, almost enclosing it completely. Together, all of these traits place this specimen firmly within the Mallow Family (Malvaceae).

2) This specimen is also an annual forb with axillary flowers, with up to 10 flowers per leaf axil. Inside each flower, one can see the anthers arranged in a single series near the top of the filament tube, just below the linear stigmas. Outside the flower, subtending the calyx, are three tiny bractlets that are generally free from each other (verified in the field, difficult to see in the photos). The stems of the plant are prostrate to erect. Together, all of these traits place this specimen firmly within the genus Malva.

3) Finally, for this specimen, sepals are about 4mm long, while the petals are around 8mm long (= 2x length of the sepals). The petals are white to pale lialc pink, with veins that are not darker than the base color of the petals. Together, these traits identify this specimen as Common Mallow (Malva neglecta), a non-native plant originally from Eurasia that has become more or less naturalized in northern California. It is also known as Dwarf Mallow.

Bull Mallow (Malva nicaeensis), photographed at the Stevens Creek Tidal Marsh in Mountain View, CA. Note that there are 5 photographs in the set of pictures documenting this specimen:

Shot 1 - Provides a closeup of an open flower and a recently closed one. Petals are 10mm long and about 8mm wide.

Shot 2 - Provides a closeup of a leaf (upperside only). Note that the leaves can easily reach 10cm near the base of the plant. This is a cauline leaf, so it is closer to 6cm at its broadest point.

Shot 3 - Provides a shot of one of the specimen's stems, so one can see the alternate arrangement of the leaves and the axillary arrangement of the flowers.

Shot 4 - Provides a closeup shot of the seed capsule. Note how the calyx encloses the seed capsule completely; also note how the bracts subtending the calyx remain attached to it, even as they enclose the seed capsule inside.

Shot 5 - Provides a wide shot, showing the plant in situ in its environment. This specimen is already about 5 feet tall, and I have seen other specimens of M, niccaensis get even taller.

Found sitting in the road with wings splayed out, unmoving. Picked him up out of the road (he opened his eyes and squeaked loudly) and watched for about ten minutes to see if he'd recover on his own, and then walked back to my car, put him in a little box, and brought him to the wildlife rehab in Burlingame. On the walk back he'd occasionally rouse and open his eyes, peck me gently, move his wings, clutch my hand with his feet, etc., and seemed to gradually be getting more active, so hopefully with some sugar water and a rest in rehab he might recover.

Nothing obvious in the area, so I assume a window strike that flew off at the time of impact but didn't make it too far.

Per @randomtruth, the hypanthium shape is the easiest character to look at for differentiation - L. cal has cylindrical hypanthiums with defined ribs, and L. junceum has shorter, conical hypanthiums that are mostly smooth.
Here's a photo by @randomtruth of L. californicum on flickr for reference - note the long, cylindrical hypanthiums with the ribs.

A Dove's-foot Crane's Bill (Geranium molle), photographed along the Zinfandel Trail at Picchetti Ranch Open Space Preserve in western Santa Clara County, CA. Note that there are three photographs in the set of pictures documenting this specimen:

Shot 1: Provides a relatively close-up shot of the entire plant in situ, on a small, rocky ledge along the edge of the Zinfandel Trail.
Shot 2: Provides a closeup of one of the plant's flowers.
Shot 3: Provides a closeup of one of the plant's leaves.

Note the follow key characteristics of this plant:

  1. Plant is an annual.
  2. Flower bisexual, consisting of 5 sepals, 5 petals, 10 stamens, and a single style with a single stigma. Flower has radial symmetry.
  3. Sepals are covered with spreading, glandular hairs. (You can see some of the glands in the closeup flower shot). Sepals are no more than 5mm in length.
  4. Petals are bilobal/notched and light pink in color, measuring no more than 6mm in length.
  5. Leaf is round in outline and palmately lobed to divided, with a cordate base. Both upper and lower leaf surfaces are covered with many soft, spreading hairs.

Note: This plant is also known as the Dove's-foot Geranium. It is widely naturalized in California, and it is fairly common at Picchetti Ranch Open Space Preserve.

I heard two screech owls in the neighborhood, told my landlord to listen for them. Next thing you know, he's built a nesting box and put it in a big coast live oak tree. It seems that they've taken up residency - we've only seen one at a time (likely the male now), but hear two, so hopefully they're nesting in there. It's astonishing to me how tolerant they are of us, highway noise, power tools, basketball, cameras... and he seems unfased by it all. This was an unusual day, usually they only appear as the last light is fading.

I didn't take measurements, but you can get a general idea of the size from the coast live oak leaves nearby.

It was walking on the soil, towards the hill (away from the lake). Seemed like it was in good shape at first, but then I noticed its eye, and another small wound on its back

A lovely bobcat that walked up the hill behind our house this afternoon. It only looked at me because I yelled at it. It did not care about me and my camera.
