Some very colorful and goofy looking Green Herons along the Tuolumne River in the Sierra Nevada foothills.
It was cooler the other morning, so I took a long delayed stroll down to the Tuolumne River Parkway trail, currently under construction (it's been really hot the last few days). There were quite a few birds down along the riv...

Another story from the bird archives...Sulphur-crested Cockatoos in Sydney, Australia
 It's the Birdman of Sydney! We continue checking out the photo archives of my bird adventures from earlier times. In 2004, we were on a geology field studies course in Australia and New Zealand. After visiting the Australian...

A Mute Swan in its native habitat in Switzerland. We have them at home, but they are considered an invasive species.
Bird activity is pretty quiet on my campus and in my neighborhood. I imagine it's nature catching her breath just before the migratory flocks begin arriving. So I'm digging into the archives to post a couple of birds I photog...

I haven't been birding for long, but I've taken pictures of them before. These Alpine Choughs were in Switzerland in 2007.
I've been overseas a couple of times, but not since my intense entry into the birding world. And yet, I can see that I had an interest in birds, as they show up among my pictures of the rocks. In 2007, we were on a journey st...

Acorn Woodpeckers are one of the more cooperative bird species around. There were quite a few of them out and about along the Tuolumne River today.
It's been a while since Acorn Woodpeckers (Melanerpes formicivorus) have graced these pages. I see them often, flying from tree to tree along the my walks on the Tuolumne River, but only occasionally do they perch low enough ...

I like mountains named for legends of their origin, and for features present on the peaks. Let's name buidings after people. The volcanoes of British Columbia...

The Red-tailed Hawks are active at the Merced National Refuge.
It was not necessarily the best time of the year to go to a wildlife refuge devoted to protecting winter migrants. In this drought year, there is very little water to spare for the wildlife ponds, and water is life in the Gre...

We have a look at my tour of a park I never set foot in, North Cascades in Washington state.
The western slope of the Cascades Range is green. Very green. There are trees, shrubs, mosses, grasses, just about every kind photosynthesizing plant there is. This is due of course to the mountains themselves. They provide a...

Standing inside a volcano at Stawamus Chief on the Sea to Sky Highway in British Columbia
It's one thing to talk about a subduction zone from the outside, where one might see an oceanic trench, or a chain of volcanoes. It's quite another to explore the convergent zone from the inside out, by, for instance, standin...

The stone people of British Columbia, though they probably should look more like Thunderbirds. The Olympics, fire, and ice in the Cascadia Subduction Zone.
A stone person stands on an outcrop up in Callaghan Creek a few kilometers west of Whistler in British Columbia. It has been called an inuksuk, although inunnguaq may be the more proper name (it's the difference between "some...

American White Pelicans are beautiful birds. Here are several that we saw at the Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge, plus a Double-crested Cormorant.
We were on a long trip to the Pacific Northwest, and on our last day of our journey we were covering a lot of ground, nearly 600 miles. Such long slogs require a few rest breaks, and the Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge be...

Cloud iridescence in central California
I was out and about running errands in the late afternoon yesterday when I glanced at the sky, which was full of high-altitude clouds. The small opening in the clouds (just left of center) caught my eye because there were som...
