Went out early, before the COS walk, as I have family brunch this morning. Started off with finding our resident Piping Plover - still at Montrose Beach. I did see a Towhee too.
All the regular birds were there. Nothing unusual. Did spend some time looking for Owls but did not find any. Waves were huge and easily making it over the wall by the pier. Very icy sidewalks.

I have to go through my pictures after brunch to see what, if anything else I found. Did not spend a lot of time looking out in the open as the wind was biting through you when out in the elements.
