Muir Woods National Monument (part 1): A Trio of Birds

Ok – let’s get something out of the way first here… Muir Woods is a smallish “national monument” (I’m still not sure what differentiates a national park versus a national monument versus a national reserve versus any of the other designations I’ve run into) just north of San Francisco. Yes, Muir Woods has redwood trees. No, I did not take any photos of those redwood trees. Compared to the giants further north, the ones in Muir Woods seemed like regular trees and I just wasn’t feeling it.

But I did get some photos of a California Quail (I wish I had managed some more!), a California Scrub Jay (see some other jays), and a turkey that just walked right by me without a care in the world…

    I am glad Ben Frankin did not get his choice for our national bird even if it is more common than the Bald Eagle. That is a face only its mother could love!

    Great jay shots!!!
