Birds and…

A few different bird species have shown up or passed through in the last few days. 5 Horned Larks (Eremophila Alpestris) stoppped by on its migration south.

4 or 5 Sparrows (probably Fox) have been here but the little guys are pretty hard to photograph! They rarely stay still and flit away when they see me coming…

Fox Sparrow?







Other birds observed in the last few days (besides the ubiquitous Glaucous-winged Gull) have been:

1 Harlequin Duck

10 Brandts Cormorants

8 Oystercatchers

40 Black Turnstones

1 Surfbird

and, considering all the Sea Lions here, what I can only conclude is a suicidal salmon in the kelp bed!
