Silverwood Sunday


On Sunday, we went for a hike at the Audubon Society's Silverwood Wildlife Sanctuary. It was a little hot (freakishly so for November), but really nice.

There is a bird observation area...just as we arrived, the volunteer told us that there had been a Cooper's hawk flying low, so the birds were mostly hiding. Above is a yellow-rumped warbler.

A white-breasted nuthatch. Such funny birds...they skitter down tree trunks head first.

This area was severely damaged in the 2003 Cedar Fire, but it has recovered...this is a burned tree from that fire.
