(Entry #14) Junco hyemalis - dark-eyed junco. There are multiple different colors; Oregon, slate-colored, and pink-sided are the most common as far as I've seen. They are rare when it is not winter, and they do appear to like to come out on the snow. They often hop around on the snow. In winter they are common/seen easily.
(Entry #12) The house fly. They fly around and buzz and make you nuts. What else they do, I do not know. Scientific name: Musca domestica.
(Entry #11) The great blue heron, Ardea herodias. They are big blue birds with great long necks and great long beaks for catching fish. They are tall, and fly with their heads resting on their bodies. They live near water sources such as rivers and lakes. Around certain water sources they can be quite common.
I do not know what juveniles look like
(Entry #9) Some sort of disease that affects especially nightshades. I have not been able to identify it. Little gray spots cover the leaves, and in some cases decrease the quality of the leaf formed. Overall the plant just really doesn't do well.
It is known to affect most nightshades, purple passionflower, and some other specimens. I have not observed it affecting trees.
I like observing animals, especially birds. I also take care of the goats. I like goats.
My assistant photographer! She also takes care of African geese.
Another assistant photographer! She takes care of the rabbits, and the hutch is teeming with crawly things.
