Taking our Cascade Camper van on birding trips, even for just a day-trip is working out real well for us. Yesterday's trip is a good example. The weather forecast was for a dry morning, so we decided to take advantage of the opportunity and got in a full morning of birding at four different locations. Although dry, it was cold, in fact 32 degrees when we arrived at our second stop at 8:30 at Ft. Yamhill State Heritage Area. After almost an hour of looking and photographing birds, Jeanette was ready to warm up with some hot chocolate. Casper the Cascade Camper van has a butane stove that's easy to set up on a picnic bench and quickly can boil hot water.
Birding trips always involve more than just birds. This little bunny is techincally know as a Brush Rabbit (Sylvilagus bachmani)
I barely got a photo of the last of seven California Quail before they disappeared into the brush.
