Description

Snail is on my gloved fingertip. It seems to be a glass snail, and the closest I can see on the eFauna BC site is referred to there as the dark-bodied glass snail, Oxychilus draparnaudi. Just my guess.

Description

The bright pink flower was tucked in some tall grass. There was just one plant and it is not familiar to me. In this dry location cleared under a power line we are seeing plants very different from those in the surrounding second-growth forest, but I am wondering whether this is another escapee from someone's garden. The petals are very bright, which seems unusual for a native, but overall it is a small plant and it is early-blooming. more like a native.

Description

Yesterday evening at close to dusk our feeders hosted a pair of Black-capped chickadees and three fledglings. We don't usually see chickadees at our feeders in the summer. We have never before seen chickadee fledglings being fed seed: finch fledglings of various species are common for us a bit later in the year. This is the only usable photo I was able to get. I tried for the three lined up together on this branch in a classic pose, but the light was very low and I wasn't successful.

Another find under heather plant while I was gardening. I posted on Bugguide and got no suggestions. However, from photos on that site, it seems to me that this is Armadillidium vulgare.

This bird does not have the developed white collar and therefore I'm guessing it's a juvenile.

Our visits from the Band-tailed pigeons are short and infrequent because our feeders are set up so that they are not able to vacuum all the seed.

I posted a photo of leaves from a similar (much larger) plant within the same general area - long before flowers were forming. No one offered any suggestion for id. I include that photo here as well for a closer view of leaves. Perhaps this is one of the many species of Hawksbeard?

This bird was very skittish. She visited our feeders in company with a male (see separate observation). We had a male and a female several days recently so it could have been this pair.

This insect was on a Mountain Ash leaf. It was pretty windy when I took the photo so I wasn't able to get good focus before it left the stage. Unlikely we'll be able to get a species from this photo?

This species looks to me like one described in Pojar & Mackinnon as Star-flowered False Solomon's Seal (Smilacina stellata) but I see that there is a similar form of Lily of the valley. Unfortunately it was very windy and hard to get sharp detail.

This plant looks similar to some Judith Holm identified for me from the Cheakamus Centre nature trails. I see there is a subspecies that is darker-coloured as these plants were.
