Today, my son and I spotted close to a dozen WESTERN MEADOWLARKS in
various plumage states, from fall-winter and juvenile to spring, in the
field right next to McDonald's on Highway One south of Fort Bragg. There
were several singing, perching on pines on the very tops as well as
foraging on the ground. Mixed in this flock were several European
Starlings, English Sparrows and White-crowned Sparrows.
Also in this same location were a few Hermit Thrushes.
The storm is raging over here, lots of wind and rain, and the ocean is
very choppy with the tide being very high and the waves are cresting at
almost 20 feet. Be careful out there, shore-birders!
