Thursday May 14, 2015 Jenner CA.
The wind was down as I drove into Jenner this morning, so it looked like it would be a fine day and it was.
As I was putting my boat in the water John the trash picker upper guy came by and we shot the bull for a bit then I put in and headed down river towards the river’s mouth area.
I could see a couple white things on the lower end of Penny Island as I approached. I was pretty sure they were white pelicans and as I got closer, they were white pelicans resting on the gravel beach. There were also some terns resting by them.
River’s mouth is open
I hung around the open mouth for about an hour just watching things, then headed back up the river through the island back channel.
A little hawk
I went on up the river past Penny Island and was cruising along the river’s edge when I saw this hawk resting on a stick. I was just able to get my camera up without spooking it and passed by it within about six feet before it took off.
I heard the wild turkeys somewhere
As I was going up the river, I heard the gobble of a wild turkey, but wasn’t able to spot any of them until I got up to the muskrat nest beach area where I finally spotted two of them up on the ridge top.
The town of Jenner
I went on in for the day and went on home for a nap and that was my day. I didn’t get anything done in the yard as the day was just too nice, but I did spend some time out chair hopping.
