Out at an area close by again, one that is currently open and easily accessible. This is the Pine Creek Unit, part of the Sacramento River National Wildlife Refuge.
This was a backpacking shakedown test to see if I could get a six channel recording system into a backpack. It works but I need to figure out where a tent and food will go.
What you see above is a quad array of Sennheiser MKH 8090 (low fuzzies), sub-cardioid microphones; above it is a Jecklin disc (high) with two omni mics in it. Below you are only going to hear the quad array, if you have four speakers. If not you’ll have to settle for stereo.

It took a few hours for the California Poppies to completely open!

Rain at Gray Lodge Wildlife Area

I headed out this morning to scout an area known as Gray Lodge Wildlife Area which is managed by the California Department of Fish & Game.  The weather was pretty overcast on the way out and I was hoping for a bit of sun.  I didn’t get any sun but I got to use my trusty microphone umbrella.  Most of  the migrating waterfowl that I had seen on my initial visit a few weeks before was gone, but the American Coots, Northern Shovelers and of course the Mallards were still there.
