Summer Hummers

It's been incredibly hot here in good ole Californ-i-a, so we haven't been able to go to our usual birding haunts--our local wildlife refuges. However, I have had a TON of activity at my hummingbird feeders! Is anyone else out there going through a gallon of nectar a week like I am?

Lassen Volcanic National Park - Part 2

Manzanita Creek at Lassen Volcanic National Park is a great place to find birds!
 This juvenile Spotted Sandpiper was bopping around the creek bank...

And we also spotted an American Dipper!

 Guess who decided to drop in while we were birdwatching...
 A mama deer and her twins!

Lassen Volcanic National Park - Part 1

Lots of water rushing by in Kings Creek...
Careful not to get swept away!
The early bird gets the worm at Lassen VNP!
In this case, an American Robin was fishing for grub at Manzanita Creek...

Birds aren't the only critters out and about at the park...

So cute!!!
