A few photos from my work blog.
The Blog formerly knowns as................ BLACKWATER DRAW LOCALITY 1
Here are a few wildlife photos from around the Landmark. Being surrounded on three sides by industrial agriculture has created an island refuge on the property. Having the most topography in the county creates some micro-climates and environments not found elsewhere. In the past weeks we have spotted coyote, gray fox, eastern and western bluejays, barn owls, a slew of various hawks, kangaroo rats, mice, deer, rattle snakes, gopher snakes, coachwhip snakes, roadrunners, and probably a dozen other things I am forgetting. Enjoy.
Another gopher snake. Some of these get remarkably large on a diet of wood rat, mice, and other rodents.
Roadrunner hatchling. I snatched this photo while the parents were away scooping up horned lizards to feed the little ones.
The ubiquitous gopher snake. It’s a miracle that more of them don’t get run over as they haunt the parking lots throughout the day.
