video
Hummingbirds are from yesterday morning....I wasn't up for the Dawn Chorus..but did get out before sunlight found the Valley floor...went out to Two Top Pine Meadow....pics...and the Hummingbirds clip....made the BigLoop counterclockwise...and then had Breakfast at Last Chance...ImpossibleNest pic..and clip I deleted by accident!..hmmph...and then curled up...woke up with an hour and a half before work, gathered things together and went over to Flicker Grove...found a log to sit on and set up the digi....waitedwaited...pics of Bullock's Oriole and Young high in an Oak...waitedwaited...and got some good clips when Mama Flicker came about...saw Flickers again today on the Canon walk!...and had the 70 t0 400mm L Lens....walk was almost over and we were at Lower Falls...and I towed everyone across the road to see the Flickers...and Mama obliged...coming by right when a few of us got there...a nice walk...but the lens is too heavy...my hand cramped up!...back to the Cabin for a nap...and then unboxed the boxes...so, some progress towards harmony and order in the Cabin!...but still a long way to go!...paddled out and made the BigLoop clockwise at sundown....one Buck by the Broken Cottonwood in Two Top...clip..a very short clip...mosquitoes!...okay if I keep moving...but I'm swarmed if stopped in a meadow....sunny hot blue today...and yesterday....light breeze....quiet walks...dont know where all the Ducks and Deer are....oh!...a small tragedy of sorts!...Bear tore open the Blue Bird Post at Chapel Bridge (second Post with the Woodpecker Holes...Bear hole now!)....could have been vandals...but dont like to think on that...may have been nest inside...whitewash all that's left...
