Birds, Bunnies, & Hot Chocolate

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.

Red-breasted Sapsuckers are one of our favorite woodpeckers to watch.
