Sometimes when I’m birdwatching…The trip to Big Pine…

Sometimes when I’m birdwatching…

The trip to Big Pine Mountain to survey birds last weekend was a lot of fun. We didn’t see as many rarities as they’ve had some years; woodpecker sightings were harder to come by than expected, and the nighttime owling was pretty much a bust due to high winds. But I added two species to my county year list, and had a wonderful time birding nonstop for two days with a group of accomplished birdwatchers.

Sometimes when I’m birdwatching…Things that are…

Sometimes when I’m birdwatching…

Things that are delightful to discover you’ve overlooked while paying attention to distant birds: Fragrant lupines, an adorable horned lizard.

Things that are less delightful to discover you’ve overlooked: An angry rattlesnake.

This could have been bad: by myself, a mile from my car, in a remote desert canyon with no cell signal. But along with being distracted and clueless I was also moving pretty slowly; a few steps, a look through the binoculars, a few more steps… So the snake had a chance to rattle a warning before I actually pushed it to the point of wasting venom on me. We each went our separate ways, and I paid substantially more attention to the path for the rest of my hike.
