Rookie lefty Joey Lucchesi was stellar and rookie infielder Christian Villanueva hit another home run in a 10-1 lambasting of the Giants on one of those days where everything just seemed to work. http://on.nbc7.com/7TDNs8k

Best offensive day of the year coupled with strong start beats the Giants

California National Guard

Meet Private 1st Class Ada Muniz, this week's #CalGuard Soldier of the Week.The #NationalGuard would like to recognize and highlight PFC Ada Muniz as our #SoldierOfTheWeek.

"Hi, my name is PFC Muniz and I am an 92A: Automated Logistical Specialist. I enlisted into the California National Guard at 17 years old right after I graduated from Weston Ranch High School. I hope to gain experience and live by the army values to one day become a CHP Officer.
Basic Combat Training was 10 very challenging weeks that pushed me both mentally and physically. However, it was an experience that I will never forget. AIT was a an enjoyable experience as I was able to learn the ins and outs of my MOS that was very interesting.
Since I was 10 years old I always wanted to serve our country. I was inspired to join the National Guard by my family and my ambition to be something greater than myself.
The #Guard is a huge responsibility that I intend to commit to and provide nothing but the best quality service that I possibly can.
One line from the Soldier Creed that means the most to me is ‘I will never leave a fallen comrade,’ because we are all in this as one team. We do not only fight for ourselves, but for those around us. #OneTeamOneFight
One core army value that means the most to me is #loyalty because loyalty means dedicating yourself to your country and surrounding yourself by those on the same mission as you to be the best #Soldier you could be for your country.”

Please take the time to congratulate this #CitizenSoldier on her Gold Phase Graduation
Ceremony, and most importantly her return back to us in our wonderful state of #California.

If you’re looking to help others and think you have what it takes to join our family, message us today. ...

Meet Private 1st Class Ada Muniz, this weeks #CalGuard Soldier of the Week.

I have yet to see one! I hope someday to.

Go to Pinnacles National Park, we saw lots of them circling overhead as we enjoyed dinner in our campsite!

great !!

👍👍👍🙏🙏🙏🤗🤗👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻🤗🙏👍

I believe the biggest threat to California Condors are Black Vultures and Turkey vultures. They are more economical scavengers and the Condors can't compete. Somehow the Vultures don't seem to be affected as much by lead. I guess they aren't politically correct.

Ash-throated Flycatchers are back in the park’s oak woodlands from their winter home south of the border. If you listen closely early in the mornings you can hear their “ka-brick” call from the tops of oaks and shrubs. These birds are adapted to dry places – they don’t need to drink water, getting all they need from the insects and spiders they eat! #YearoftheBird

Ben there AWSOME 💕

How long before dRump allows logging strip mining and fracking there

From the very first time I saw those tree's ,it seemed all fairy tails were seeded in truth.

Been there...amazing giants!

Oh, what memories this photo recall----every summer for many, many years!!!❤️😥😥❤️

Amazing Park and Kings Canyon is like a big playground on a motorcycle

That’s something I always wanted to do

Awesome

Shelly Smith Melton, here to!

What a greater starting place....with the senior residents of Earth.

Some day Vilija.

Nola Rae Smith

Now that's what I call Tree's...... beautiful

des arbres majestueux

Natalie Allen Edwards

That’s an amazing view! Hard for me to imagine trees that big, so pictures are great!

But our planet was once all beautifull, unspoiled, and still could have been all beautiful, but NO!
Some people just want to have too many kids, so those of you who had and are having more than 2 kids, YOU have caused and still are causing massive population growths, that leads into more and more developments and growths that destroyed and is destroying nature and the true face of the earth.
So I wonder how long will these beautifull places survive and last, because of selfish, reckless, careless, ignorant and EVIL human population growths.
The world population is increasing in an alarming rate of more than 200,000 people per day, everything will be eventually destroyed, thanks to those people, you destroyed this planet, kept shitting on it, and now you think you are worthy of these nice places?

Sometimes a Peregrine will go after a Raven or a Crow. The photographer who took this cool image said this was a raven, but we're thinking maybe a crow. Either way, the black bird is having none of this. (Great photo by Nick Chill) ...

I have seen crows mob the hawks at my ranch...

Yea all I ever see is crows picking on hawks, so I yell at them. This doesn't help but it makes me look like a nut so I persist!

I am thankful that the crows convinced the hawk family to move from my tree. I have a little dog. More crows this year than last is a good thing. 🤷🏼‍♀️

I can observe a nesting red shoulder pair , the crows tend to ignore them

Go crow!

Rounded fan tail says raven to me

Raven beak comes out of head more

The little guy prevailed.

I think it's a crow also Ravens are bigger.

Crows suck. Just sayin'....

I have seen the ravens chase & attack even the eagles away from their nests. this dual continues just about every day if look up in the sky. ravens are the smartest birds around, can mimmick human sounds like a parrot in captivity.

Crows have a crescent. Wavens have a wedge.

It has the shaggy beard of a raven

Could be immature raven

i see scenes like this quite often here in the South Bay.

Yes! It was a Hooded Oriole. And a Nuttall's Woodpecker.

Rock Pigeons, circling over traffic - Garden Grove, CA

Hummingbird 💜

Nope, just my old friend Allen Hummingbird!😁

Yes I did. Soooo beautiful

Black Phoebe!

Costa’s Hummingbird, today and every day.

I saw my first hooded oriole yesterday. Today, the first bird I noticed was an extremely loud Orange Crowned Warbler which has been singing at SDSU for days now.

Juncos

Yes, we have Hooded Orioles. They are beautiful.

Somebody flipped me off in traffic this morning does that count?

Cassin's Kingbird in my yard in Claremont, CA.

Western Oriole ?

Gull

I don't know about Orioles but a Starling almost flew into me trying to get to the cat food I left outside.

Great way to start your day bird watching#LOVE2EARTH everyday!

Blue jay

Crows, Calabasas

Lots of Elegant Terns :)

Band tailed pigeon. They crack me up. 😊 Placerville

We've just moved. Now I see Robins every morning and all day long. Robins are really a rare sight in the SF Bay Area where we used to live. We used to see them from Spring to Fall. No more...

All I ever see is Egrets and occasionally a great heron.

Golden-crowned Sparrow. Only one among the White-crowned Sparrows. Cottonwood, Calif.

Egrets flying to their rookery a few blocks from me!

Mockingbird.

Moro Rock?...

Interesting photo, exposure-wise...quite possibly a single exposure, with just the right timing to start the exposure before local sunrise.

Is the road to the back of the canyon open yet?

Last night a dusting of snow fell upon the higher elevations of Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. This is the time of year where storms like this are rare since we are in a Mediterranean climate. Enjoy the last bits of snow trees! Summer is right around the corner. In fact, on Sunday it's going to be 65 degrees!

The MA coast is also getting unseasonal snow. However, I don't think too many people here are really enjoying it. I'm looking forward to my warm weather visit to Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks.
