Stellar Jay

Stellar Jays are beautiful birds with their striking blue colors and their crest.  They are also fun to watch because they have a strong personality that shows in some of their antics and in their interactions with each other, other birds and humans.  They have become quite accustomed to human contact in Yosemite and are notorious thieves, often stealing unprotected food from campsite tables. Have a wonderful day.


While in Northern California, the real Northern California (Siskiyou County) I was lucky enough to catch some blooming Dogwoods.

They’re a beautiful flower but what we call the petals are really just special leaves.

Während ich in Nordkalifornien, dem echten Nordkalifornien (Siskiyou County) war, hatte ich das Glück, einige blühende Hartriegel zu fangen.

Sie sind eine schöne Blume, aber was wir die Blütenblätter nennen, sind wirklich nur spezielle Blätter.
