Take a Winter Walk at Big Bear Lake, CA

Join us on a walk in the winter woods beside Big Bear Lake on New Year's Day.

The lake was frozen over. An inlet stream was a trail of ice. Yet, despite the freezing temperature, birds were out and about.


Steller's jay
We spotted several elusive pygmy nuthatches (Sitta pygmaea) and a number of charismatic Steller's jays (Cyanocitta stelleri). 

It was Bodie's first experience with snow and ice. He was amazed to find it edible.

Did you take a minute today to experience the natural world around you?
