Few of the birds will send California birders into a tizzy or chase, but for an Easterner fleeing winter, they presented an invigorating variety.
There will be, of course, a series of posts. I begin with a sampling on or along the Monterey Peninsula coast.
|Monterey, CA, Coast|
|Yellow-rumped Warbler (Audubon's)|
|Black Turnstone and Surfbird|
And finally (for this post), a non-avian fauna, the Sea Otter. Momma holds a crab on her chest while her pup comes close in hopes of lunch ...
|Sea Otter - Mother and Pup|
More anon ... good birding!
