We spent some time last week in the Valley Center area, northeast of San Diego. I collected quite a few new birds for me, since I had not been in this region before. Below is a sampling of the collections.

We believe in helping with Monarch conservation. We have two kinds of milkweed on the property. The Monarchs are migrating south and deposited eggs on our plants the last couple of weeks. We have about 40 caterpillars stripping the leaves off the 12 or so plants on our property. Here are some photos of larvae and an adult.
