Ford property sightings

While assessing the impact of the recent fire, Andrea Gullo and I visited the "Ford property", a parcel owned by the Habitat Authority at the head of Turnbull Canyon, just north of Turnbull Cyn. Rd.

Two sensitive species were present, a Cactus Wren giving a single "chert" call from the cactus on the slope below (to the west), and a coastal western whiptail moving through the leaf litter at the edge of the property's driveway. This lizard is apparently localized in the hills. I've posted a (poor) photo of the whiptail here.
