A short birding hike is better than no birding hike. Thanks to the new Merlin Sound ID, I was able to spot a Summer Tanager. Here's some flowers from my walk. The bird photos are still on the memory card.


Saw a weird spider that looked like it was wearing a seashell.

Selfie, eye contact. 

Its cottonwood season, and there was a ton of cotton fuzz balls everywhere. A came across one especially fuzzy tree, and took a selfie to show the scale of the fuzz.

I got up super early to walk with my Mom, so it was still chilly and this robin was fluffed up to keep warm.

A few neighborhoods in town are covered in these, but most places have none.

I went camping withy brother last weekend. The campground had a hiking trail, and a section of it was called "pine corridor". I can see why.

It had dug a hole and was laying eggs right next to the paved trail.
