He Western Scrub Jay is nonmigratory and can be found in urban areas, where it can become tame and will come to bird feeders. While many refer to scrub jays as "blue jays", the Blue Jay is a different species of bird entirely. In recent years, the California Scrub Jay has expanded its range north into the Puget Sound region of Washington.
Orb weaver spider
Sometimes called Christmas berry
because the fruit is produced in the
fall through winter.
A member of the rose family.
Fungi are more closely related to animals than to plants
The mule deer has large ears that move independently.
Mountain lions can jump 18 feet (5.5 meters) from the ground into a tree, and they have been known to jump 20 feet (6.1 meters) up or down a hillside. That’s the height of many two-story buildings.
Mountain lions are good swimmers, but they’d rather not get in the water because they don’t seem to like being wet.
The coyote is a clever animal that has adapted well to growing human populations and habitat loss. Coyotes, also known as the American jackal, are members of the canine family. They can be found all over North America and have even adapted to living in metropolitan cities. Their distinctive howling call can be heard in many places with several animals joining in at once.
Coyotes have greyish-brown to reddish-brown fur. They are typically 32 to 37 in (81 to 94 cm) long and weigh 20 to 50 lbs (9 to 23 kg).
Pacific gopher snake adults range in size from 2.5-7 feet (76-213 cm) in total length. However, most of the subspecies reach a length of 4.5-5 feet (137-152 cm). The hatchlings are relatively long, and they have been recorded at lengths upward of 20 inches (51 cm).
The Pacific gopher snake has a base color ranging from yellow to dark brown and has a gray coloring on the sides of the body. It is a spotted snake, with the spots being dark brown. Usually there are 41 to 99 spots on the body, while the tail spots range from 14 to 33. The side of the body has 2 or 3 rows of alternating black and brown spots.
The roadrunner is about 52–62 cm (20–24 in) long, has a 43–61 cm (17–24 in) wingspan and weighs 221–538 g (7.8–19.0oz ). It stands around 25–30 cm (9.8–12 in) tall and is the largest North American cuckoo. The adult has a bushy crest and long, thick, dark bill. It has a long, dark tail, a dark head and back, and is blue on the front of the neck and on the belly.
The Bobcat is a medium sized cat with a ruff of fur around the sides of the face. They weigh between 13-30 pounds, stand 21 inches high and are 30-50 inches long. The bobcats in the North tend to be larger than those in the south. Their coat color varies and has been recorded in shades of light gray, yellowish-brown, buff-brown, and reddish-brown. They are always spotted to some extent, with some patterned only on the undersides, and others having spots on the sides and chest backs too. The southern Bobcats seem to have a more spotted coat, with the spots being much smaller than the northern cats.
The Great Horned Owls is a very large, powerful owl with prominent ear-tufts. It was first seen in the Virginia colonies, so its species name "virginianus" was created from the Latinised form of this name. Great Horned Owls are sometimes known as Hoot Owls, Cat Owls or Winged Tigers.
Length 45-63.5cm. Wingspan 91-152cm. Tail length 175-250mm. Weight 900-2503g. Females are 10-20% larger than males.
Spittle bug, common name for members of a family of plant-feeding insects, the nymphs of which cover themselves with a protective frothy material that looks like human spittle. Spittle bug, like their relatives the aphids and cicadas, suck plant juices with their needle like mouth part. Although the bugs' feeding can distort or stunt herbaceous plants, they are generally harmless. Nymphs and their spittle can be washed off of plants with a forceful stream of water. About 850 species of spittle bugs are known worldwide, and 23 species are distributed throughout North America. They can be found on a wide variety of plants.
The big-eared wood rat (Neotoma macrotis) is a species of rodent in the family cricetidae. A study of the species found the "Bear Canyon" virus, traditionally associated with the California mouse, is actually passed by the big-eared wood rat before host-jumping to the California mouse.
This is probably the most common hawk in North America. If you’ve got sharp eyes you’ll see several individuals on almost any long car ride, anywhere. Red-tailed Hawks soar above open fields, slowly turning circles on their broad, rounded wings. Other times you’ll see them atop telephone poles, eyes fixed on the ground to catch the movements of a vole or a rabbit, or simply waiting out cold weather before climbing a thermal updraft into the sky.
When they are frightened, Brush Rabbits often thump the ground with a hind foot and may also squeal. These very small cottontails use burrows dug by other animals as escape routes, and sometimes climb into shrubs or low trees to avoid capture. They live in dense, brushy areas and look carefully for signs of danger before venturing into the open. They are gregarious when foraging, but when they are resting they maintain a small personal space and keep other rabbits out.
Orb-weavers have eight similar eyes, hairy or spiny legs, and no stridulating organs. The Araneidae family is cosmopolitan, including many well-known large or brightly colored garden spiders. The 3,006 species in 168 genera worldwide make Araneidae the third-largest family of spiders known (behind Salticidae and Linyphiidae). The orb-weavers include over 10,000 species and make up about 25% of spider diversity
The eastern diamondback rattlesnake is the largest venomous snake in North America. Some reach 8 feet (2.4 meters) in length and weigh up to 10 pounds (4.5 kilograms).
These stout-bodied pit vipers generally live in the dry, pine flat woods, sandy woodlands, and coastal scrub habitats from southern North Carolina to Florida and west to Louisiana. Their pattern of yellow-bordered, light-centered black diamonds makes them among the most strikingly adorned of all North American reptiles.
The Western harvester ant is found in the west at high elevations. This is a red colored ant that can be 6.5 to 10 mm long. Galleries have been found to go over 600 cm deep.
It is commonly found from the coast to the highest mountain areas at over 6,000 feet. It isn't found in the desert. This lizard is conspicuous and common in its range. It thrives in a wide variety of habitats, ranging from coastal sage scrub and chaparral on the coast and foothills, to the forests of higher elevations. It's usually found on or near the ground, in rock and wood piles, tree trunks, and the lower branches of shrubs.
The reddish-gray-colored common earthworm, often called a night crawler in the United States, is familiar to anyone with a fishing rod or a garden. They are indigenous to Europe, but are now abundant in North America and western Asia.
Typically only a few inches (7 or 8 centimeters) in length, some members of this species have been known to grow to a serpentine 14 inches (35 centimeters). Earthworms’ bodies are made up of ring-like segments called annuli. These segments are covered in settable, or small bristles, which the worm uses to move and burrow.
The sun is one out of the billions of the star.
The name Xylococcus comes from the greek word
for "wood berry".
Native Americans Used the plant to treat
clods and stomach disorders
