No passing zone

A large northern Pacific rattlesnake crosses the double yellow line on a country road near Elkton in SW Oregon. A common misconception about rattlesnakes is that you can tell their age by the number segments in the tail. The snake actually adds a new segment every time it sheds and they normally shed 2-4 times per year. It depends on how much they eat and how fast they grow.

According to allaboutbirds.com, a western bluebird weighs about an ounce. It needs about 15 calories (technically, kilocalories) per day, or 23 calories if raising young.

Brush rabbits are a species of cottontail rabbits found only on the western coastal areas of north America. Small and secretive, they spend mostly of their time in dense bramble clumps and thick brushy habitats.
