  •  Epic cuteness: Saw this life list bird. (10+ / 0-)

    heh, for me anyway..this is still back when we went to Port San Luis/Avila  pier just south of Morro Bay, Morro Rock, Montana Del Oro park, Diablo Canyon nuke...all to the north.

    probably had seen it many times before, but now being a full combat birder..well, raw recruit, I have to make a Life List.

    So this little beauty, Pigeon Guillemot and here according to all the books ( now watch me be wrong again, yet again!!)..in breeding plummage.

    Nearby are the rocks and large cliff with lots of nesting possibilities. I bet Morro Rock is also a great bird nesting spot..it's closed now for hiking to the top..

    anyway, it was out there and made a sqweek once in awhile, and then swam calmly right alongside the pier in San Luis/Avila...just outside  the end past where the seals are and the Otters...or are they Lutrii?

    Cutest bird evah!

    and look at that sweet face!

    Someone said here back when I jabbered first about them that they may be nesting on the rocky islands and outcrops around the corner on the way to Diablo Canyon right around the corner/northward.

    This machine kills Fascists.
