Twice

Once upon a time, we were on Whiskeytown Lake near Redding, California.  Shari's cousin was telling us about these prehistoric birds that they had seen around the lake.  We found them.  I guess if you haven't see a cormorant before, you might think they are a little odd-looking.  I played with a couple of images and came up with this.

Precarious

Most mountain lakes I've seen, if there is an associated power plant , the power plant is located below the output of the lake.  This lake is a little different.  Water is moved from Trinity Lake to a power plant and the power plant output forms Whiskeytown Lake.  Not only is that different, the Francis C. Carr power plant hires guards who wear feathered uniforms and stand guard on sticks located in towers.  Northern California is a little different from other parts of the state.

Curious

"What do you think, Bill?  Should we rush them?"

Speak To Me

I have no idea what this growth is on an oak tree, but, I'm pretty sure it's not lips and probably isn't good for the tree.  It was about 18 in (0.45m) in height and width.  I thought about asking the tree what he knew, but, got distracted by a shiny object in the road.

Welcome

Kind of reminds me of a jungle.  Not a real jungle.  If it was a real jungle, there would be some kind of feline lying on the limb or a snake dangling.  But, for Redding, California, the scene was close enough to a jungle.

Gathering At The Fence

The first thing horses think about when they see people standing at a fence, is treats.  You know, like a carrot.  I mean, if the horse is going to walk 500 feet because people are gawking, wouldn't you expect a treat for coming over to say hello?  There were no treats and I think next time, the horse will just nod his head in recognition and continue on his way.

Stopped Laying

This is a Redding, California hen.  She has stopped laying eggs.  I suggested it was dinner time.  Our hosts are too attached to the chickens to eat them.  Currently looking for a retirement home for them.
