This marmot species was previously thought to occur only in the Brooks Range of northern Alaska (e.g., in The Gates of the Arctic National Park). However, Aren Gunderson has recently documented broweri well north and well south of their previously-believed range limits.

According to DNA tests, the Alaska marmot is more closely related to Asian marmots than to its closest North American neighbor, the Hoary
Marmot.

An ancient beetle lineage
Identified as Omma stanleyi on Bowerbird by Matthew Connors: "This family is considered one of the oldest beetle families alive today and consists of just two genera, one from Australia and the other from South America. This genus is incredibly old and was once much more widespread, with a fossilised representative extremely similar to this one (O. daxishanense) known from the Late Jurassic of China around 160 million years ago! An exciting find to say the least"

The consensus among people I've talked to so far is that this is most likely a hybrid or the offspring of a hybrid between Masticophis flagellum ruddocki and Masticophis lateralis lateralis. That being said, I'm interested to see if anyone thinks otherwise. Anyone know of other Masticophis hybrid records besides taeniatus x lateralis?

@meandthealiens and I found this snake in treeless desert habitat (more suitable for M. f. ruddocki).

Description

A fledgling Spotted Owl was discovered in Trabuco Canyon on June 10, 1974. The fledgling was the first bird to be photographed, then one of the adult pair was noticed standing guard just about 50 ft away. I'm uploading images of these two birds separately because they are both so important and, well, cute! This constituted the first solid documentation of the species in Orange County and obviously the first nesting evidence in the mountain range as well. See also,
https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/15516399

It remains to be seen if the Holy Fire of August 2018 has destroyed the grove of trees where these birds were found (see last image for a 1974 view of the site).
