Autumn is coming to the Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge!

What a beautiful day to take a drive through the auto tour route at the Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge!

There isn't much water yet, but there are still plenty of birds to be found. Ducks are already beginning to arrive and we spotted an American Bittern in one of the canals less than five feet away from the car!

I look forward to returning in a few weeks when the geese are there and filming some video of the walking trails...

Wildflower Wednesday 🏵 Places to find wildflowers in Northern California


This isn't exactly bird-related, but I've started a new website to showcase my wildflower photography and invite you to come over and say hello!

I'll be posting photos of lupine, poppies, wild sunflower and everything between on Wildflower Wednesday every Wednesday and on Instagram too.

Here's to blooming wherever you can find sunshine and not just where you're planted!

Lily Pond Trail ☼ Lassen Volcanic National Park

We spotted a few bird friends around Lily Pond during our hike down the trail in Lassen Volcanic National Park...
 These female mallards were feeding down under the lilies and finally emerged to take a nap in the sun...
What a nice way to spend an afternoon!

Let's go birding!
