Took my 10 yr old daughter birding at Castroville Regional Park this
morning and had a great time. Highlight was a pair of Green Kingfishers
feeding actively along the edges of the smaller pond. The female got quite
close to us at times a was able to get a few pictures with cell phone
through binoculars.Also saw a nice Black-crowned Night-heron. Accrued 45
species for the morning, 30 at the park, 15 along the drive.

Take care,
