This morning for the second time in a few weeks I heard a few nasalized calls of the RED-BREASTED NUTHATCH at our place in Soquel.
Then, inspired by the reports of jaegers, I went down to Sea Cliff State Beach. As a reward for my run, I scoped the ocean and was rewarded with at least 3 PARASITIC JAEGERS and 1 POMARINE JAEGER. At one point 2 PARASITIC JAEGERS flew along the wharf up close to the cement ship. Had I been prepared with a camera, I might have gotten good photos.
Regardless, just beautiful out there on the ocean. The crowds have also thinned out on the beach.
