Spottings

California barrel cactus favorited by Francis Floe Twentynine Palms, California, United States 3 minutes ago

A large barrel cactus that can reach 6.6 ft in height. Aka Miner's compass. I found about 6 specimens while at the park. This one was about 20 inches in Height. They have long red spines that turn grey with age. They also have a tendency to lean towards the southwest. They are actually orienting themselves towards the noonday sun to protect themselves from the heat, hence the Miner's Compass name.

One of the largest hares in North America reaching about 2 ft in length. Their long ears can reach 5.1 inches in length and have black tips. The fur is light brown with a light amount of black to help it blend into the desert scrub. Black tail, brown eyes, and long powerful rear legs characteristic of hares.

The Marbled godwit is a medium-size stocky shorebird with a long pinkish bill with a black tip and slightly upturned. Non-breeding plumage has cinnamon-washed underparts. Sexes are similar with females being generally heavier and having longer wings and bills. Pic 6 shows 2 Marbled godwits foraging with a Willet.
