Heather Nordstrom is chronicling the development of a western wood pewee nest on her front porch.
Heather Nordstrom took these photos of Chromosera cyanophylla, a beautiful and colorful mushroom. 6 June 2019, near Eagle Meadows (about 7500 feet elevation), Tuolumne County, Ca. Thanks to Jacob Pulk for the identification.
Here are photos from a difficult swallow exclusion job we did on a very tall building at Bear Valley. The swallows were nesting under the eaves at the top of this tall building. The exclusion was necessary, because the birds carried swallow bugs, that were entering the structure. We put up bird netting to block their access. David Katosic, Bill Breidenstein, and Josh Esposito were all involved in the project.
In addition to the exclusion, David Katosic used our power washer to clean the siding way up there.
Jason Price picked up a box wrench; well, it was actually his service truck tire that did. The wrench punched right into the tire, ruining it. That was an expensive wrench. 30 May 2019.
