This bird was observed at Stampede, but I am also seeing them at Boca.
Naturally you would think Tundra, but too far away. Flock circled above reservoir, but never landed.
Huge distance between me and these birds. Likely Snow Geese, but even through binoc's I could not get a really good look. So could be Ross. Still worth documenting that migrants are using this reservoir.
A flock of about 20 birds was observed feeding along the dry banks of the reservoir.
Three birds observed feeding and resting where the Little Truckee enters Boca Reservoir.
Most pulled in July, but found one plant. Dry and seeds attached. Note to look for growth next spring. Need to edit location.
Very few fish observed.
Richarsonii? It's so purple.
Crappy iPhone photos, unfortunately.
As I approached, I noted a vulture fly off, then I smelled carrion. I didn't go close enough to confirm carion but I'm guessing it was road kill. The bear was about 30 m from the road.
Running across Sagehen Rd from meadow, uphill through forest. Honey colored body, black face and paws. Small sized. Sorry, no photo.
