Bluebird of Sycamore Grove

Today’s destination was the Sycamore Grove Campground in Red Bluff, California.  It’s one of our all-time favorites. It seems to be mostly overlooked by traveling RV’ers, which is fine with us because we have never had a problem with getting a spot.  Our campsite for the night was 16 dollars, but because it’s a National Forest Campground and we have the Senior Pass, it only costs us 8 dollars. Besides being economical we love the setting.  Located right on the Sacramento River it has miles of hiking trails with excellent habitat for birds. This explains why we got our driving time done early today so that we would be able to go birding this afternoon.  We spent three hours, walked over three miles and identified 24 different species of birds, among which was this Western Bluebird.  It was just what we needed to do to shake off three days of freeway driving.  We normally like to spend several days here hiking and birding, but with snow in the forecast for the Siskiyous for Tuesday, we are going to climb over them tomorrow.
