I had the afternoon off from work today so I could not resist the chance to head up to Montgomery Woods again. Seems there is always something new to see. Today, my attention was grabbed by a shiny object high in the canopy. After getting a closer view with my binoculars, I could see some scientific instruments attached to one of the branches near the top. I'm assuming that they were placed there by Steve Sillett and his crew, as they have been monitoring the grove for changes in the climate the last few years. There also were a lot of visitors to the grove today.
