I'm fortunate enough to live 'way up on the northwestern coast of northern California, an area sometimes referred to as The Humboldt Nation, or the land behind the redwood curtain. Work takes me on the road six months a year, but the rest of the time is mine to surf, kayak, fish, watch birds, and of course take photographs of this remarkable region. Create your own visitor map!

Caption: This female found a very safe place to build her nest -- in the arms of a big saguaro, 20 feet off the ground. From the size of it, the nest looks like it's been in use for years.
