A sign that fall is coming.

At Corcoran Lagoon, I saw a flock of European Starling on the Library lawn.
I went down to the Rivermouth looking for interesting birds and got retro-looking shot of the boardwalk. For most of the month it's been foggy until about 11:00am each day.
I went to Antonelli Pond for the first time early in the month. I saw several small songbirds like this Goldfinch and also shorebirds. I've never seen a Blue Heron roosting at the top of a tree; that was unusual.
Despite school starting last week, I made several little photo ventures in August.
At the beginning of the month, I there was an unusual number of anchovies all over the Central Coast. I definitely saw a wider variety of shorebirds than ever before. These Elegant Terns are feeding their young.
More Pelicans than I have ever seen on the SC Harbor jetty. I didn't realize that Brown Pelicans were endangered.

The weather has been sunny and great for birding. I was excited to catch three roosting Black Crowned Night Herons at Corcoran Lagoon this week. There were also several Snowy Egrets, a Blue Heron, a Brown Pelican, and the usual flock of Mallards and occasional American Coot.
