Lots of Caterpillars along the American River, 05-25-19

I got around 6:00 am this morning and headed out to the American River Bend Park for my walk. It was overcast for most of the day, but I was able to do my walk without getting rained on, so that was good. The first thing I saw when I got there was the leucistic […]

Found a Robin’s Nest at William Land Park, 06-23-18

I headed out with the dog to the William Land Park for a short walk. And I mean short. We were only out there for about 90-minutes. It was 73º already when we left the house at 5:30 am! and 80º when we got back home. On our way to the park, I came across […]

I was out the door and off to the Effie Yeaw Nature Preserve once more to check on the development of the Monarch Butterfly caterpillars – and get some fresh air and exercise in, of course. Before I left the house, I noticed there were a few Yellow-Billed Magpies out foraging in the neighbor’s yard, […]

Needing Some “Get Outside” Time, 05-02-18

I needed to “get outside” of myself, so I took the dog over to the American River Bend Park. Sergeant Margie can’t do long walks anymore, so he spent the majority of the time in the backseat of the car. I parked in the shade and left the windows about 1/3 of the way down, […]

Bugs and Caterpillars at the River Bend Park

I slept in a little bit this morning and didn’t get up until about 7:30.  I got the dog in the car and we headed out for our walk.  First, though I had to run a few short errands: grocery store, put gas in the car, go to the bank… So we didn’t get to […]

My First Live Sighting of a Great Horned Owl!

Around 10 o’clock headed out to the American River Bend Park again for a walk.  My cold-pneumonia thing is still clinging on, but I actually feel like I have a bit more energy today, so hopefully I’ll be in recovery-mode from here on out. I went to the park hoping to see some good fungi […]
