Not to rain on anyone's parade, especially Mr.Jim McGuire, The snake
you saw being eaten by the bittern was not an endangered S.F. Garter
Snake (T.s. tetrataenia). If you were birding in Point Reyes, that is
in Marin County. The S.F. Garter Snake is only found on the S.F.
peninsula. The other subspecies called the California Red-sided
Garter Snake (T.s. infernalis)is more widespread and is what you all
were seeing being eaten. I used to live in Rohnert Park and found the
California Red-sided all over Marin and Sonoma counties. Sorry for
being a buzzkill but thought everyone should know.
