Bald Eagles are pretty uncommon in southern California, but they are becoming more of a common site in many areas. We found this young bird hanging out near some of our ponds. They will catch prey as large as Canadian Geese, which are large birds.
We get lots of mammals showing up on our field cameras it is always nice when we get something a tad different. This Great Blue Heron grows to be 4 feet tall, and eats just about anything that flies, scurries, or swims in front of it.
We have set out a couple of field cameras that will snap off a shot everytime something walks by. They operate day and night. We get coyotes nightly, and every few nights or so we get other critters including bobcats, skunks, and raccoons.
I am a Field Biologist working and living in So. California. I work mainly with endangered birds but also spend a lot of my time collecting and processing plant specimens. Along the way there are days where I may work with reptiles, mammals and even insects. I like to document my daily adventures with photographs which I will post on here as often as I can.
