Lake Gregory in the distance.
I went up to Crestline which is a community surrounding man-made Lake Gregory out in San Bernardino County not far from Lake Arrowhead. The woods are full of pine, oak, cedar, American dogwood, and lilacs. It is full of wildlife. You can see bears, mountain lions, raccoons, skunks, bobcats, and coyotes in addition to birds.
The path around Lake Gregory was a beautiful walk with the sun peaking through the woods. The woods were also full of wild flowers.
The loud, harsh sound of Steller's Jays filled the air. They were everywhere. Hopping from branch to branch in the trees to foraging on the ground.
Little Mountain Chickadees hopped quickly from branch to branch. Hanging from the branches to feed.
Acorn Woodpecker in a pine tree. Lots of oaks in the woods.
American Robins kept a low profile in the trees, dropping down on occasion to feed.
One cooperative American Robin hopped along the road and then up onto a nice, sunny stump in front of a cabin for a photo op.
The dogwood and lilacs filled the woods with blossoms.
Even though is was Spring, some trees looked like fall.
It isn 't woods without Steller's Jays in California--or so it seems.
The trees were full of birds checking out the area, wondering if it was safe to touch down and feed.
Steller's Jay chows down.
Back to the lake for one last walk. We see lots of gulls and a Spotted Sandpiper. All in all, a nice weekend at Crestline in the San Bernardino mountains.
