Cave Springs


First time at this spot - even though the campground is closed, there are a few parking spots off the road
and you can wander several trails. A short walk goes right down to the creek. Sightings:

Yellow Warbler
Painted Redstart
Brown Crested Flycatcher
Bullock's Oriole
American Robin
Black Phoebe
Great Blue Heron
Summer Tanager
Western Tanager
Stellers Jay
Acorn Woodpecker
Downy Woodpecker
Turkey Vulture
Dark Eyed Junco
Bewick's Wren

Common Raven - just before I left, I spotted a Raven on the old concrete foundation. He was wrestling
with a small snake! He took off and flew to a tree just across the creek, and it appeared that he
"bundled up" the snake for easier carry, and took off downstream.
