Pruning in the raspberry patch
Looking for the old turkey vulture’s nest
I’ve been thinking I’d like to go up in the hills and see if I could find an old turkey vulture’s nest I’d found four or five years ago, or was it longer.
I rode up into the hills where I thought I remembered the nest was but it was a long time ago and I just couldn’t remember exactly where, and the forest looks about the same in many places. I remembered it was by a spring and in a big hollowed out redwood stump that the tree had been cut down long ago.
Hiking around looking
Not this one
Maybe this one, but no
Not this one
Looking down the hollow stump. I remember the nest was in a hollow stump with a small hole near the bottom so the chick could get out and go to the spring to get water. I couldn’t find the small hole in this one so it’s not likely the one.
Gave up and went for a ride
After a couple hours of hiking around looking I was tired out from all the up hills so I gave up and took off for a dirt bike ride up to the ridge top.
Clearing rocks off the roads
Nice cold drink of spring water
I’d left my loppers up in the hills where I was working on burying the spring water pipes so I stopped to get them. As long as I was up there I got a nice cold drink of spring water here on the way back down to the dirt bike.
Family memorial trees
From there I scooted on home for a much needed nap.
After that I did some chair hopping around the yard just enjoying the day.
