The Pleasant Grove Creek Trail

I took a stroll with the camera on Pleasant Grove Creek Trail yesterday. It's a paved walking/biking path that follows Pleasant Grove Creek for about a mile on the northeast edge of Roseville. I've been shooting landscapes there for a number of years, but this was my first outing with the intention of photographing birds. Considering it was my first attempt, I'm not dissatisfied with the results. I managed four keepers and saw a good variety of birds; not too bad for a outing that lasted around two hours. You can see the photos in the Beyond the Bird Feeder gallery (scroll to the bottom).
