A Reddish Egret continues at Santa Maria River mouth this morning. This is probably a continuing bird first reported a week ago on July 18th. Shorebirds were sparse and there really isn't much habitat unless they feel like working the edge, but five Black Turnstones flying over the estuary was a bit of a surprise. I also spotted a banded Brown Pelican with a blue band on its left leg #A10 that I will look into.
