The following March we saw a pair from Pohono bridge. Later, park naturalists found the female was raising some young. We found her each spring through 2006 but no nesting was noted. We have not seen a Harlequin there since.

Description

I put this into 4 separate observations.
The story is, I was metal detecting in the mountains while waiting for the 4th of July drone light display and stumbled upon this poorwill. I dropped my metal detector and followed it through the woods to get a picture (https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/124902166). I finally got a picture and when I went back to get my metal detector, right next to it I noticed 2 tiny eggs (https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/124902168). Since I was there anyway I took a quick photo and then left it be. It was with 2 or 3 other individuals. I then found a feather I am guessing belongs to this species (https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/124902167) and a couple minutes before the drone display I recorded an audio clip (https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/124902172). This was perhaps the best 4th of July I have ever had because I am thankful they are trying something less destruction of explosive noise pollution and air pollution. The explosions from South Lake Tahoe's fireworks display made the forest quiet and as usual went on so long I got bored.

Growing along the sides of the road were Eriogonum strictum (Blue Mountain Buckwheat), Grindelia squarrosa (Curlycup Gumweed), Sisymbrium altissimum (Tall Tumblemustard), and Verbascum thapsus (Great Mullein) in bloom.

The blue was not observed on any plant, only seen flitting about on wetted pebbles on the stream bank where Birch Creek Rd. intersects Birch Creek.

Was found at a rest stop near colfax California at approx 10:30 am in a very vegetated area underneath a small log over dead plant debris. The pictures actually show 2 different sharp-tailed snakes they were both next to each other under the log. One was active and tried escaping deeper into the debris while the other just laid on top. The timid one was about 3 inches longer than the active one small one was about 8 In and larger one was about 11. Both of them had two vertical red bands along their body.
