KAYAKING: Custom 01/16/2017

It was a spectacular, calm and glassy morning for the last day of the winter bird festival. Some of the highlights amongst the birds was a snoozing sea otter who floated very near to the boats and lots of harbor seals in the estuary. Notable bird sighting were two peregrine falcons chasing shorebirds in the estuary, an osprey carrying a very large fish for our viewing pleasure and a large flock of American white pelicans. We saw hundreds of mixed shorebirds as well as a few American avocets. A great way to finish up the annual Morro Bay Winter Bird Festival birding trips!

It was a calm, clear, cold morning on the bay today. A perfect way to start the Morro Bay Winter Bird Festival trips. And we had some great sightings. American avocets, five snow geese, a merlin eating a songbird right next to an osprey munching on a fish. Plus, hundreds of Brandt geese, shorebirds of all kinds - godwits, curlews, willets, black bellied plovers. Some Caspian and Forsters terns in there, a white pelican, northern pintails, northern shovelers. A wow day on the bay!
