Yellow Cobblestone Lichen?
Last picture: I discovered another patch of Lichen in the photo, Tile Lichens? I would have made it a separate obs, but it's a bad pic, so for now I'm just curious.
(On this rock were at least three kinds of Lichen... I'm wondering, are they are competing or peacefully co-existing or even symbiotic?)

PS. Thanks, @mossgeek, for the terrific observation suggestions you posted on your project https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/lichens-of-southern-california. Such as, bring spray bottle! Measurements don't seem to be of such importance, right?

The secret world of shrubs around and below my deck has been a bird nursery this spring. Fledgling House Finches, Spotted Towhees and now California Scrub-Jays are waiting for their parents to show up, and have their first little adventures on their own. Right now are at least two baby Scrub-Jays in these shrubs. One of them LOVES water and when the coast is clear drinks(*) and bathes several times a day. I took these pictures hiding in my living room, through the window.
(*) I'm not sure the little fledgling actually drinks water. It dips its beak in, but it does not tilt its head back like the adults...

The female Great-tailed Grackle really wanted to find something to eat. First she looked for a fish. Then she looked at the spider webs in the sedges. Then she eyed the sky, looking for something airborne. Then she went back to starring into the water... and then she moved on to another spot.

The soundscape suddenly changed to intense cicada electronics. I didn't know where to look to find any (on the ground, on the grasses, under rocks?) and made a mental note to check obs on iNat. I was thinking about the many hours I spent in the middle of the night to locate a cricket in my house, unsuccessfully... And then I saw one!! It was sitting halfway up on a Black Mustard plant. It looks like @dlbowls's https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/3701955

Found on a piece of fur with skin still attached to it. Forensic assistants... Per Wikipedia, "the stage of its development on a corpse is used to calculate a minimum post mortem interval," and "The presence or absence of L. sericata can provide information about the conditions of the corpse," for example if it was moved or disturbed.
