It was one of those crisp, sunny days that California’s Coast often enjoys in spring. Of couse, by 1PM the gale was blowing in off the ocean as the hot air rose from the sun-heated land. Front row, left to right, Pelagic Cormorant, two brown Pelicans that did not migrate south to breed, Doube-crested Cormorant. Back row: small yacht and fishing boats. Pelagic Cormorant looks at camera. Its neck is not pale; that’s the sheen of the wet feathers in bright sun. The first two pics were taken at Marshall on Tomales Bay. Male Wetsern Bluebird at red barn at Bear Valley Visitors Center, Pt. Reyes. Male American Goldfinch, not only bright but boldy singing. Savannah Sparrow keeping posted. He and the goldfinch were at Giacominki Marsh adjacent to Pt. Reyes Station.
