Great Blue Heron, Birdwatching Eden Vale Inn, Placerville CA
Saturday, December 05, 2009
A Great Blue Heron was fishing in the pond today at Eden Vale Inn near Placerville in the Sierra Foothills. Fall is still to be found as many of the native oaks have not yet dropped their leaves. I went hiking today at Wildman near Chile Bar on the South Fork of the American River maybe 7 miles above Coloma. This December 5th, 2009 was a beautiful day, cool even cold but the sun was out. A great day to scramble down the mountain through the Blue Oaks to the American River in the Sierra Foothills winter. And, free of snow.
