Comments & ID Thoughts
I believe this is an Bold Jumper, Phidippus audax, found on top of my red Ford Edge car, but want to be sure. It isn't normally seen in Oregon, but has been spotted here in the Willamette Valley before (I'm from Eugene, OR). Any help would be appreciated. Also, I have remarkable video I recorded of a larger one attacking a BC Chickadee hatch-ling---I would like to confirm that is the same spider. Anyone ever hear of one doing this before? Check this video out:
