The squirrels here in Davis don’t have to worry about very cold winter conditions, but they do keep themselves busy year-round. I love watching them scurry around, up and down trees, chasing each other. This one brought a big smile to my face when I saw them.

This photo was taken near the end/middle of my morning hike. I was walking down the path and saw these gorgeous moss-covered rocks and an active stream with many little waterfalls. I just had to get a good photo. After this photo was taken I had to traverse a badly blocked path by a downed tree and a swollen creek that was slightly above my knees at it’s deepest. Truly an invigorating hike.

I love the way a Black Phoebe sits just over a small pond and makes quick jumps out to get insects. It’s very cool to watch! This photo doesn’t show that, but I love the bright colors in the background.

These colorful birds are one of the easiest to find out in the wild. A very loud bird who is not afraid of humans. They travel in small groups, constantly talking to one another. The California Scrub-jay is slightly different than the Western Scrub-jay, and is usually separated by the Sierra Nevada mountain range.
