Two decliners, and an unfortunate increaser
Did not have a lot of birding time this weekend, but Jean and I got a bit of time in, nice to get the occaisional west coaster and trade tales ! She got to see MY Gt Horned Owl,she performed well. Yes, both the owl and Jean !. Of my 3 pics the first two are rapidly dissappearing and the last.?
We found a flock of starlings reminiscent of winter flocks in Newcastle, no guestimate on a number but several hundreds, all starlings. I have not seen a flock that large before in California .The noise, a definite "murmeration"of starlings.
Depressing thought that that was a highlight !
enjoy the week , roger and russels
