Quiet afternoon at Oso Flaco

Rubba Johanna

Celebrated the holiday by going to my favorite place. Oso Flaco was quiet today. A scattering of Ruddy Ducks and Buffleheads was accompanied by 2 White Pelicans and an Eared Grebe. Out at the beach, I saw 8 Snowy Plovers at the creek mouth and 3 Brewer's Blackbirds drinking and bathing in the stream that drains to the ocean. On the walk back, saw what was probably a female Common Yellowthroat in the trees on the approach to the boardwalk. Very plain bird with a white eye ring.
