This blog is predominately about camera trapping in California. We camera trap to save our souls and to teach primary school students about biology and conservation. We will also touch on other camera trapping news and musings, sets from afar, mediocre herpetology, sucky birding, and other natural history discussions.

Spotted Towhee, Pipilo maculatus
The Spotted Towhee was a first for me in this area.

California Towhee, Melozone crissalis are everywhere.

Golden-crowned Sparrows, Zonotrichia atricapilla, were the most frequent visitors:
