Description

Walking back from the Sousa Marsh overlook, this American Beaver was casually swimming in a pond just off the trail. Cruising away from me, it did an explosive splash with its tail as it disappeared up a narrow slough.

The only other beavers I've ever seen were at after dusk in Montana and they were just a few silhouettes of ears moving low across the water so this was a real treat!

Experts - What is going on here? This male American Kestrel sure did seem to have the hots for this female Merlin. He kept trying to get close to her and even brought her a few treats (insects?) from the grass beneath the fence. She accepted the treats but didn't seem thrilled with the attention. However, when he flew off, she followed him...

@abr , @grnleaf While hiking with @flygrl67 along the Cone Peak Trail, we passed through several thick patches of manzanita
and emerging out of these shrubs were scattered bright red growths. I believe these may be a fungal infection like Cowberry Redleaf (Exobasidium vaccinii) but this is only a guess and I haven't found anything especially informative on diseases of manzanitas. Do either of you recognize this? Thank you!
