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.

The yellow feet of a Snowy Egret is a giveaway for identifying it. I’m not very good at identifying birds in the wild usually, but I am getting better. These little tips help a lot.

Another beautiful angle of this moss covered creek. I had such a blast in there.

Northern Mockingbirds are quite common here in California, but I never saw them in Minnesota. It has been very nice to see all sorts of new birds since I moved here.

The light in this photo is so cool to me. You can easily see where the rim behind me blocks the sun, and also where the clouds do as well. Very cool! The deep red of the rock at the bottom always drew me to it as well.

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.

I love the ethereal feeling I get from this photo. The bright and vibrant green grass surrounded by the seemingly dead brown reeds. The fog permeating throughout and a path to nowhere.

I love the pose of this Yellow-rumped Warbler. Sometimes their colors are hard to see or muted, but this one was bright and on full display.

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.
