Colusa National Wildlife Area August 23, 2011

This is a National Refuge not far from Gray Lodge and another great place to view migrating birds in a month or so.

Yesterday there were thousands of these dragonflies
doing their mating dance.

DFG Gray Lodge Wildlife Area August 23, 2011

Even during the off season still birds and critters to be seen here. As part of the Pacific Flyway, by November hundreds of thousands of birds will migrate through this area.

I really don't know why this cactus was here, but it was huge.
