Winter Migration

This morning we took off on our annual winter migration to sunny California and Arizona.  Mother nature gave us a royal send off with a day where the tempature stayed at 43 degrees and the rain continued all day long.

If you know anything about us, you know that our travels are as much or about birding as it chasing good weather.  Our first stop of the day for birding was at Cottage Grove at the Row River Nature Park.  We really were not without rain, just a short period with less rain.

After lunch at Burger King in Cottage Grove we traveled on south via I-5 to Grants Pass.  We spent the afternoon and early evening parked at Tussing Park on the Rouge River where we birded, rested, and had dinner. So nice to have a RV to stay warm and dry out of the elements. Click here for our bird list.

We plan to park for the night at Herderson's Alignment, only a few blocks away. Tomorrow is supposed to be dryer, which we will take advange of to climb over the Siskyous with a overnight stay at Sycamore Grove in Red Bluff.

    1. We had lunch at McDonalds in Lake Shasta yesterday, and it occured to me that is exactly what I would have doing if I was in Salem with the Audubon Nature Reserve Volunteers!
