Not quite in my backyard but I thought I'd share...

I saw my very first velvet worm last week

After reading about these and seeing them on TV documentaries it was very cool to see one for real. :-)

That is wicked cool! On my sole trip to the Southern Hemisphere I looked for these guys, but didn't find any. Congrats!

My best wildlife sighting of the weekend was three species of Zonotrichia sparrows, White-throated, White-crowned, and Harris' Sparrow, all feeding on the ground beneath my feeders, within a few inches of each other. I ran for the camera but they had dispersed before I could get it deployed.
