[Mendobirds]: White-faced Ibises And Scissor-tailed Flycatcher
- Yesterday, we saw 2 breeding plumaged White-faced Ibis, Plegadis chichi,
flying north just above the bluff-top trail from our hot tub at The Sea
Today, we saw an adult, male, breeding plumaged Scissor-tailed Flycatcher,
sitting on a trail marker post at the corner of Buckeye Court and Rock Cod
on The Sea Ranch.
While we didn't film the WF ibis, we have videotaped the ST flycatcher.
Both sightings were approximately 1 mile south of the Gualala River.

"Life cannot wait until the sciences explain the Universe. We cannot put
off living until we are ready. The most salient characteristic of life is
its coerciveness, it is always urgent, 'here and now' without any possible
postponement. Life is fired at us point blank."
Jose Ortega y Gasset
