Meadowlark mentioned above, and Common Loons, April migrants that are lovely and are nearly always in pairs, calling to each other as they dive gracefully about the bay. Common mergansers thinning out, Buffleheads still around, warblers singing, swallows flying ...a very nice time of year if you like to watch birds.

I'm pretty excited about just seeing a Winter Wren in the summer, but he sat by singing for awhile to let me get pictures!!!, on a dark gray morning did not think they would turn out....this cute little bird is more reddish brown than a House Wren, smaller, but tame like a Chickadee..

Finishing up (finally) the photos from my last trip to the Cal Central Coast in September 2014. Going on 3 years since I've been there, been a crazy time. Anyway birds: Snowy egrets, California gray gull, got this listed as cormorant but not sure can't find my notes, hummingbird, brown pelicans and black cormorants.

Thanks Don, encourage me and I'll post more.
Pelican dive bombing a fish, turkey vulture, plover (?), what I feel is probably the best shot I've ever got of a turkey vulture. They're either way up there, or swooping in really fast on a thermal. This one I was up on some high cliffs and got to shoot down on it somewhat.
