Sycamore Grove #3
A short set with some good footage of an Acorn Woodpecker. A Hawk, some Herons, California Buttercups, and a Helicopter checking the park out.
Sycamore Grove #2
The eastern end of Sycamore Grove is across from the Wente Winery and just below the VA hospital grounds. There happens to be a Heron Rookery in the tall trees. There are a huge # of turkeys in the area. A vulture and a woodpecker were watching me. In the end, there's a bit of Heron's passion...
Sycamore Grove #1
This shoot was in February and it was a bit chilly. The first shot shows a "room to let". I waited a while to see if the tenants would come home to no avail. I caught a few songbirds, a jay, a woodpecker, and my first ever Owl in the wild. I tried to wake him up so I could see those huge golden eyes, but nope. SNOOOOORE! I love the deadwood in the area and the Sycamores make for a wonderful contrast when bare of leaves. The hills are a treat anytime especially when snow-capped. I also found a squirrel or two, a bull, and some cows.
