My Corner Of The World - July 2011



It's a bright, sunny day in Sacramento, Calif, with expected 100F temperature today. I think I need a plastic kayak to play on the American River.

Here are some California Black Walnuts growing along the river.


This is a Yellow Billed Magpie, a little bigger than a Blue Jay, and almost as noisy.


This noisy red bird is the Sacramento County Fire Department helicopter patrolling the river looking for people in trouble in the river. There were over 80 rescues in the last week.




This butterfly is called Buckeye and is common in this area.


The chihuahuas are getting up close and personal with a couple of Canadian Geese that live here year 'round.

And that's my corner of the world!
Have a good day!
