Hot spots for wildflowers this weekend in Northern California: Table Mountain(link to Sac Bee article) near Oroville, Butte College Wildlife area (nearby Table Mtn. off of Clark Rd.--no pets at Butte WA), and South Yuba River State Park (docent-led tours on weekends). The aforementioned areas are all public access areas but remember to respect the rights of property owners whenever you view wildflowers. Visit Cwildflowers.com for more spots in CA and throughout the US.

Geococcyx californianus (AKA Roadrunners)! Unfortunately, we had not yet unpacked the cameras and by the time we got them out only the male was visible, and just barely at that. The lesson: always have the camera ready as there might be more sites to capture than stationary wildflowers!
