2016-11-29 Tuesday At Cottonwood Spring

Scenery - n/a
I’d camped here in late September with the Science Team from the San Diego Natural History Museum gathering data as a followup study from previous studies of about 80 years prior. Mojave National Preserve in San Bernardino County, California.

Some of you may recall I stayed at this location at the end of September with the science team from the San Diego Natural History Museum. It was my first serious session photographing in the “Rat Theater“. I was so preoccupied with my rodent subjects, I neglected some birds that were at the springs. I only met those birds that came near the house where we stayed. I stopped at Cottonwood Spring on my way to Granite Well. It was pleasant, albeit a brief one. I managed to get a few birds, but the Red-Breasted Sapsuckers I’d hoped to get were not to be found.

Camping at the Granite Well site has been the coldest excursion of all the museum outings. I’m glad this is the last campout until spring next year. 

Below are some of the birds I met at the spring.
