Nature videos

In my ongoing quest to make videos about DeKalb County forest preserves (and, no doubt, other cool places I go), I present the latest video about Wilkinson-Renwick Marsh. There's a couple new things I did with this video. It is the first one to feature original music by me, an acoustic guitar riff. I hope to do more of that in the future. Production values suffer from meager equipment, but it's amazing what can be done with so little.

The second video is a minute's footage of a Cooper's Hawk in the forest along the Kishwaukee River near Esther and Jonny's place. I originally thought it was a red-tailed hawk because the tail is a little reddish, but within minutes of posting it on YouTube I was corrected by an ornithologist.
