Michael and Ruby Klatt shared these photos and notes from a recent (November 2014) trip to Catalina Island.

We saw this acorn woodpecker (above) at the Botanical Garden on Catalina.  The drought wasn’t bothering him at all.  The island fox (below) had one too many cactus pears.  Our tour guide said that they get kind of “drunk” and crash on the road.  These little guys have recently been saved from the brink of extinction. See Catalina Island Fox Information to learn more about this interesting mammal.
