Birding In California…Talk About The Weather

I birded my area, Bozeman, Montana, thoroughlly, this year. The highlights included Merlins in town through the winter, almost twice stepping on White-winged Crossbils, outside of town Rough-legged Hawks, Prarie Falcons, Bald Eagles..and so on.

There is a lot of ice their now so it is nice to be in Santa Cruz, California, housesitting for my sister who is now in paradise in New Zealand.

I like Santa Cruz, where the surf is pounding, it seems like, all of the time. In my sister’s neighborhood I have already seen Surf Scoaters, Steller’s Jays, Bushtits, California Towhees, Allen’s Hummingbird, Western Scrub Jay, three species of commorant, six species of gulls and so forth. It is a lot of fun, even for a gimp like me.
