Very Foggy at the Cosumnes Preserve, 12-11-18

It was foggy and cold most of the day, about 41° in the morning, and in the 50’s by the late afternoon.  I headed over to the Cosumnes River Preserve for a walk even though Wilson was hurting a bit. It was super foggy out there, so it was nearly impossible to see any birds, […]

Butterflies, Wrens and Some Leucistic Wild Turkeys, 03-18-18

I went to the American River Park, and I was having some trepidation about that, since the last time I went there my window got smashed.  But I wanted to check on the Great Horned Owl I’d seen there, and I wanted to see if the manroot vines and pipevines were out in force yet.  […]

Mostly Deer and Red-Shouldered Hawks on Sunday

I didn’t sleep very well last night because Sergeant Margie just couldn’t seem to get comfortable in bed and Pozey kept stomping around.  Still, I was feeling pretty good today; not 100%, but maybe close to 95%, and I’ll take that.  There’s still a remnant of the cough, but I’m not taking any medication right […]
