Bluebird populations weren't doing so well not so long ago. Thanks to volunteers installing bluebird nest boxes, there has been a significant increase in the number of Western bluebirds tracked in California over the last 19 years. Crown Beach in the East Bay is just one of many locations in the Bay Area where volunteers have installed nest boxes.

A framegrab of a hummingbird feeding in a wind tunnel at #ucberkeley filmed using a high-speed camera. Scientists can see, frame by frame, how neither wind nor rain stop these tiniest of birds from fueling up.

Every winter, California newts leave their forest burrows to travel as far as three miles to mate in the pond where they were born. Their mating ritual involves bulked-up males, writhing females, and a little cannibalism.

The green sea turtle is usually found in tropical waters. However, scientists have found a population of green sea turtles in a river near Los Angeles. Turns out, two surrounding power plants inadvertently heat the water (by using cold ocean water to cool their systems), creating a turtle jacuzzi.

San Luis Reservoir holds nearly twice the volume of water than it did in February 2014. Even so, due to a number of factors (including an unfavorable runoff forecast), many Central Valley farms will receive no water from the federal Central Valley Project this year.
