White Rock lake, Sunset Bay
Photo story
Photo 1:
Well Hello There
Tracey & I were at the lake and there was a juvenile grackle that approached Tracey. I gave Tracey the bag of bird seed I had with me and she fed the baby. She sat down & it came right up to her.
Photo 2:
Would You Like Some Peanuts?
I have never seen a juvenile grackle ask people for food and be hand fed before. Possibly something happened to its mother. In the bottom left corner you can see a rock dove also interested in the food.
Photo 3:
Don't Worry, You Don't Have To Share With The Rock Dove
The dove was making the baby grackle a bit nervous.

Photo 4:
Here's Some More
It seems to be focused on Tracey as she talks quietly to it.
Photo 5:
Careful, That's A Big Bite
Junior has a beak full of bird seed & Tracey looks like she is cautioning Junior to take smaller bites.
Photo 6:
You're So Brave
Such a brave bird. We ended up leaving a small pile of birdseed on the ground and went on our way. I had never seen anything like it with a wild grackle.

Found the insect early in the morning floating in a chilly bird bath. I took it indoors and photographed it as best i could under household fluorescent lighting, but not adequately.
I made the following visual observations:
The insect is pale green in color with a beautiful golden sparkle on both body and wings. The eyes are shiny red-gold in color. There are no markings on the head or pronotum, but a row of copper-color spots down the dorsal ridge of the abdomen. Characteristic?
It quite resembles a number of other Chrysopidae observations that have yet to be ID'd, to my knowledge:

Very cool burrowing wolf spider that Tony found. Tickling the burrow entrance with a twig brought it out the surface pretty consistently. Check out Tony's pic at http://www.inaturalist.org/observations/1355182, which shows more of the body.

It seems like Wallace 1942 might still be the authority on this group, which is sort of unfortunate for us in the West b/c he basically says in the paper that he didn't have enough material to be definitive on western species. G. gosoga is the only species he explicitly lists from California, including sites in the Mojave, but using his leg diagram on p. 55 one might be convinced ours was G. uinticolens, which seems all black on the lower surface of the tarsus and metatarsus of the first two legs (a lot of his key seems to go by color of the underside), but which only seems to have collections from Utah and Arizona.
