I needed an afternoon off after the big trudge, three shows in a month has wiped me out. I drove up to the wildlife area. If you want to go north on the 15 you better leave by two, I left at 2:30 and hit the traffic.
I finally got to the reserve and realized that there is very little water this year, driest I have seen it. Push pull between agricultural interests and wildlife I suppose and guess who wins?
Saw a small coyote running around, a couple squirrels. I drove out to the Walker Ponds. No yellow headed blackbirds but did see this peregrine falcon launching.
