Taking a little break from my vacation yesterday and decided to post this picture from my other vacation going up to Point Sur Light House. Found this Pismo Creek Mouth at Pismo Beach in California saw there was 78 bird species reported so decided to check it out. So it's hard to get to Google Maps told me to go through an RV campground and I thought a little like we are taking advantage of their campground to go birding so a guy at the entrance told us were we could also park for free. Another campsite next to them had parking outside the grounds. So we parked outside and walked through the campground to some hill to get to the destination I wanted to be. There was alot of hills on the other side of the creek. Before you get to the other side had to go on the beach (which was very flat) and go through water that was going on the beach coming from the creek going to the ocean. I was just happy that their was no high tide so I can get through water to where the hills were. But most of the birds were seen at the mouth. So really didn't have to go to the hilly sand. There saw 50 Western Sandpipers, 30 Whimbrels,( picture: 1 Caspian Tern Adult Breeding) and 5 California Gulls. When you get on the hilly sand area will need to look over to the other side of the creek and I saw 13 Mallards, 1 Canada goose, 80 American Coots and 4 gulls. So this Hot Spot I would rate it a B- for a lack of new bird species but only for the Caspian Tern being there I would give it a B+ because it's a (lifer) new bird for me. Hope you like the picture.🔝🔝🔝🐦🐦🐦🕵️♂️🕵️♂️🕵️♂️

We have Common Raven (Corvus corax) on my campus and they have chicks! This adult was picking pieces of bark off of a tree to bring to the nest. The male brings sticks over, but the female is the builder. Common ravens lay 3-7 eggs. I can't really see our new chicks from the ground, but I've heard at least 2 chicks, maybe 3 calling their parents when they return with food. Now that the weather is nice again I'll be bringing my camera to campus for more photos. Photo taken February 2018.
I hope you guys don’t mind another Snowy Owl photo ☺️. I have to admit, this might be the most phenomenal bird I’ve ever been face to face with. I’m still speechless when it comes to this beautiful owl. Shot taken at Lake Michigan in Chicago, Illinois 🇺🇸 Enjoy 🙌
