And another California Report
This time from Vladimir Dinets, who teamed up with Venkat Sankar last weekend. They saw some nice stuff.
California Weekend, 2016: Vladimir Dinets, 1 week & some nice species including Mojave Ground Squirrel, Dark Kangaroo Mouse, Agile Kangaroo Rat, Pygmy Rabbit and White-eared Pocket Mouse.
No, just found by spotlighting. Trapping in the nearby Desert Tortoise Natural Area didn’t work at all although there were lots of rodents running around.

Venkat suggested that the change from pale to dark k-mouse at the same location could be due to the switch from dry to wet years, as the former prefers more arid habitats. Could be true: pale k-mouse hasn’t been recorded from Mono Lake before, but 2012-2015 was the worst drought on record.
