Tur Vul at Laguna Niguel Reg. Park
- Today, on the way to somewhere else, we spent an hour at Laguna
Niguel Reg. Park. While being entertained by the antics of the
large flock of Tricolored Blackbirds stealing bread from the
assortment of geese in the tackle shop parking lot, we were almost
overcome by the strong smells hanging about the place, especially
that of SKUNK! Just a bit further down the road we watched a
Turkey Vulture on the ground, almost half way up the hillside,
delicately eating away at something dark and furry (yes, delicately).
On the way back up a few minutes later we stopped the car and watched
for a while again, not wanting to leave until we knew what
the Vulture was eating. Yep, just as we guessed ... it was the SKUNK!
The Cattle Egrets were very picturesque as they were seen against the
fresh new Spring green of the park.
