Nice oak savanna video from Oregon

I stumbled across a link to this video while editing the Oak Savanna page on Wikipedia. Well worth watching this 8 minute video. Although the species are different in Oregon than in the Midwest, the habitat seems very similar.

The principal oak here is the Oregon white oak or Garry Oak, Quercus garryana, named for Nicholas Garry, a deputy governor of the Hudson's Bay Company in the early 1800s. This species ranges from southern California to southwestern British Columbia, growing mostly at lower altitudes.
