Here are the two birds that I caught together in one photo. Could go either way, I suppose. http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/321...

I prefer the Black-faced to the Little pied because the black on the head of the latter doesn't go below the eye & down to the bill. It's a hard photo to read the facial markings from. But my first impression was of a Black-faced cormorant.

Ah, I love the little sharpshooters. So cute. So springy.

Welcome oznature.

Spider webs can be largely divided into "organized", the classic circular, with radiating ribs, joined by spiral arms. Or, "disorganized", like the above. The large number you had in the grass at one times makes me think there was a recent hatching. And that their numbers probably decreased as some moved on, or were eaten.

It's impossible to miss their scat. Thus far I've only known one's been on my acreage when I spot a well dug area and the cubed scat.

Well done. Those skunk apes are exceptionally shy. Now I'm going to have to post some wombat poo. It's cube shaped. Really.

I think you are correct about this being a slime mold. My best guess is Fuligo septica.

Yes, I can, thank you. I think this spotting predated that mission. ; )
