How sad this land had to be filled with water. If you are interested in learning more, there are many web sites about John Muir and Hetch Hetchy. Here is one of them:
Not the best photo, but all I could get today. I’m sure this is the female GHO, hunkered down in the “nest,” although these birds don’t make nests, but sitting on her eggs. Within about three weeks I should see babies at the three GHO sites I watch every year. She sits here and the male brings her food. Often the male is close-by but I didn’t see any males today at the nests I observed.
I have added a new page, Yosemite. I hope you will take a look. I’ll be gradually adding to this gallery and starting others, as I update this blog.
Thanks to all of you who follow my blog and for your kind comments.
