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.

A new feature as we have run dry of coyote images. !
I was stoked this spring to see the return of the Red-shouldered Hawks to their nest by my school.
Their adventures have been chronicled here over the years, with last year's duel with the owls a truly fascinating experience. It unfortunately resulted in disaster for both birds. The hawks did not nest successfully and I learned through Wildcare that the owlets that fledged did not survive very long.
Three young hawks fledged this week and have been gliding and screeching over the hill above campus, thrilling students and staff alike.
More to come from this crew next Friday...
