The Monterey Seabirds trip this Sunday is a go. We are currently below
the minimum we typically require but we are going anyway. There will be
plenty of room on board for you photographers out there. Cost is $75 per
person 831 375-4658 http://www.montereyseabirds.com
Just to tempt you here are some rarities being seen in the area of late,
some of which haven't made it onto the birdbox.
Monterey County: There are currently 2 VERMILLION FLYCATCHERS at the
infamous Moonglow Dairy. On the way in you will see a low spot under the
powerlines with willows on the left. That is the location they are being
seen. Directions are on Don Roberson's website
A HARLEQUIN DUCK is being seen in the harbor, also reported this week
were Red-necked Grebe and Ancient Murrelet.
Santa Cruz County: A ROCK SANDPIPER is being seen on the rocks below
West Cliff Dr. between Columbia and Woodrow Dr. in the city of Santa
Cruz. Directions on the Santa Cruz Bird Club website
A TUFTED DUCK has returned for the winter and can be seen in the city of
Scotts Valley on Willow Pond. The pond is behind 269 Mount Hermon Road,
corner of Mt. Hermon and Lockwood Lane. Exit Highway 17 at Mt. Hermon
Rd. The gate is usually open.
Hope you can make it,
