White-tailed kite appeared right after, but I think this is a different bird. Thought it might be a leucistic northern harrier, and Merlin Bird ID said it was a harrier, and the kite didn’t appear at all.

Gopher snake inside a cliff-swallow nest high on the exterior wall of the Lucy Evans Baylands Interpretative Center in Palo Alto, CA. This was an impressive climbing feat. A ranger says they see this predation most years.
