Oaktown again

Back in Oakland once again, prepping for our trek NORTH to Quincy/Meadow Valley for the summer. It's fun to see these folk again, feels like a second home. Charlottesville was great, cool town and beautiful surroundings. Special thanks to Jim, Bee, Carol, and Barbara for the great visit. We made it out for some birding, and though we did not find too much due to wind, there were some species I hadn't seen for a long while.

First thing in the morning we ran into this little guy running across the road to join its mother and fellow cub. Couldn't get anything better than this:

American Redstarts were singing all over the place

As were the Eastern Towhees

Ovenbird, singing in plain view for us too
