Description

Tricky horse tracks on a thin layer of sand + clay on top of concrete. Strides were ~ 30 inches. One observer said she can see nail marks from the horseshoes, I think so too. This observation was during an evaluation prep session at Border Field SP. The challenge in these atypical presentations was largely overcome by looking outside of the 'circle' we drew around this set of tracks to get additional context. @beartracker @ollerton

26 FEB 2021 ANZA BORREGO DESERT: On our quarterly transect of the Narrows - while investigating woodrat nests - the Anza Borrego Desert Tracking Team came across what appeared at first blush to be a very large bobcat latrine under rip rap supporting the steep bank of Highway 78. The scats were all on the small side for bobcat - approximately 3/8 - 1/2" diameter - and not well segmented. A few were connected in typical tootsie-roll lengths but many were not. None of the team had ever seen anything like this before. We find lots of bobcat scat in the Narrows, much of it in latrines, but nothing under a rip rap wall in such a volume, and none of it this small.

I put a cam on the "scat cave" on 26 February and retrieved the
SD Card 14 March 2021. Seven animals appeared. Most notable was a Ringtail 26 Feb just a few hours after I departed. The scat matches Mark Elbroch's and James Lowery's descriptions for Ringtail.

Other images captured were of a Rock Wren, Black-throated Sparrow, Bryant's Woodrat, Merriam's K-rat, Peromyscus, Antelope Ground Squirrel and a Desert Cottontail.

Yesterday morning, the skies cleared up for half an hour or so, and I spotted a Merlin on the cypress across from my kitchen window. I went outside to take pictures. After three minutes, the Merlin pulled a dead bird up it had hidden in the cypress and started plucking it. I collected a few small feathers until the next rain shower came down hard, and will look for more feathers today. Based on what I can tell so far, the Merlin had caught a Spotted Towhee.

Medium-sized sandpiper. My guess is a solitary sandpiper, which are quite common in this area during mid-May. Tracks measured 1 3/16" - 1 1/4" long. In Elbroch's Bird Tracks, only the Ruddy Turnstone bridges this range--but that bird has thicker toes. Based on bird size, weight, and ebird sightings, other possibilities may include Stilt Sandpiper & Wilson's Phalarope.
