I was with my daughters in January of this year near this area. It was a little cool, but very overcast. A quiet, misty, magical day.  This is how I remember the sea.

Chickadees, so cute, so quick! We have some berries growing on a tree in our backyard. The birds overdose on these berries, get loopy (are they drunk?) and fly into the windows. Amazingly they seem to recover ok. The berries are almost gone now, I think that might be a good thing for the birds :)

On the way home from Lake Tahoe last summer, we stopped at Emigrant Gap. It was wildly beautiful, and one of the most dangerous places for early settlers to cross.
"The spring of 1845 saw the first covered wagons to surmount the Sierra Nevada Mountains. They left this valley ascended to the ridge and turned westward to Old Emigrant Gap. The Wagons were lowered by ropes to the floor of Bear Valley. Hundreds followed before, during and after the gold rush. This was a hazardous portion of the Overland Emigrant Trail."

A first I wasn't too excited about these rowdy Red Wing's raiding the feeder. But as I began to take photo's and sketch them, they surely seem to have personalities. They are really persistent, and even if I am out there, they will scold me and then ignore me while they feast on sunflower seeds. Their red wing markings are gorgeous, especially when illuminated by the sun.

This Sparrow took off from the feeder as the sun was going down for the evening. It may have been his last feed of the night, although they never seem to stop eating!
This painting is from my own reference material, drawings and observances.

Another back yard bird, this time a female sparrow. She's all grey, but when the light passes through her wings wonderful things happen. She was just getting ready to land on the feeder.

This guy hangs out at the feeder, scares most of the other birds away. I don't mind, when we are in the warmest days of summer he'll be eating his weight in bugs :)
Based on my own photo reference.

This bird is from my own photo reference. I am always amazed at how the sunlight changes subjects from ordinary to outstanding. I love how the light passed through his wings. These little Sparrows look pretty ordinary sitting at the feeder in our yard or perched in a tree, but in flight, magic happens :)
