There’s stork’s-bill all over this property. There is about a ten foot patch in which a few of them are partially white like the one in these photos. Outside of this ten foot patch, the rest of the stork’s-bills on this property look normal. It’s like this every year. Any idea why? Is this the plant’s natural color or a fungus or what?

It was really interesting to watch the jackrabbit interact with the two baby ground squirrels (at first I thought it was a baby jackrabbit). The jackrabbit hopped around them, then stopped to sniff them, and then went on its way. The baby squirrels weren't in the least bit scared of it.

I took this opportunity to study these 3 species, most importantly botrys and brachycarpum, the differences of which are poorly documented. I observed 160 E. brachycarpum, and 242 E. botrys.

Some rather scruffy-looking Common Mallow (Malva neglecta), photographed in a patch of mulch at Varian Park in Cupertino, CA. Note that there are two photographs in the set of poctures documenting this specimen - the lead shot (Shot 1.1), which provides a view of the plant in situ; and the remaining shot (Shot 1.2), which provides a closeup of one of the flowers and some surrounding leaves.

In identifying this plant, I made the following observations:

1) This specimen has bisexual flowers consisting of 5 sepals; 5 petals, a single pistil, and numerous stamens. The 5 petals are partially fused together to fom a corolla tube that is radial in its symmetry. The pistil has a superior ovary at one end 5 linear stigmas at the other. Finally, the stamens' filaments have fused together around the pistil, almost enclosing it completely. Together, all of these traits place this specimen firmly within the Mallow Family (Malvaceae).

2) This specimen is also an annual forb with axillary flowers, with up to 10 flowers per leaf axil. Inside each flower, one can see the anthers arranged in a single series near the top of the filament tube, just below the linear stigmas. Outside the flower, subtending the calyx, are three tiny bractlets that are generally free from each other (verified in the field, difficult to see in the photos). The stems of the plant are prostrate to erect. Together, all of these traits place this specimen firmly within the genus Malva.

3) Finally, for this specimen, sepals are about 4mm long, while the petals are around 8mm long (= 2x length of the sepals). The petals are white to pale lialc pink, with veins that are not darker than the base color of the petals. Together, these traits identify this specimen as Common Mallow (Malva neglecta), a non-native plant originally from Eurasia that has become more or less naturalized in northern California. It is also known as Dwarf Mallow.

Bull Mallow (Malva nicaeensis), photographed at the Stevens Creek Tidal Marsh in Mountain View, CA. Note that there are 5 photographs in the set of pictures documenting this specimen:

Shot 1 - Provides a closeup of an open flower and a recently closed one. Petals are 10mm long and about 8mm wide.

Shot 2 - Provides a closeup of a leaf (upperside only). Note that the leaves can easily reach 10cm near the base of the plant. This is a cauline leaf, so it is closer to 6cm at its broadest point.

Shot 3 - Provides a shot of one of the specimen's stems, so one can see the alternate arrangement of the leaves and the axillary arrangement of the flowers.

Shot 4 - Provides a closeup shot of the seed capsule. Note how the calyx encloses the seed capsule completely; also note how the bracts subtending the calyx remain attached to it, even as they enclose the seed capsule inside.

Shot 5 - Provides a wide shot, showing the plant in situ in its environment. This specimen is already about 5 feet tall, and I have seen other specimens of M, niccaensis get even taller.

Found sitting in the road with wings splayed out, unmoving. Picked him up out of the road (he opened his eyes and squeaked loudly) and watched for about ten minutes to see if he'd recover on his own, and then walked back to my car, put him in a little box, and brought him to the wildlife rehab in Burlingame. On the walk back he'd occasionally rouse and open his eyes, peck me gently, move his wings, clutch my hand with his feet, etc., and seemed to gradually be getting more active, so hopefully with some sugar water and a rest in rehab he might recover.

Nothing obvious in the area, so I assume a window strike that flew off at the time of impact but didn't make it too far.

Per @randomtruth, the hypanthium shape is the easiest character to look at for differentiation - L. cal has cylindrical hypanthiums with defined ribs, and L. junceum has shorter, conical hypanthiums that are mostly smooth.
Here's a photo by @randomtruth of L. californicum on flickr for reference - note the long, cylindrical hypanthiums with the ribs.
