Description

Trust me, there were at least 2 Purple Sandpipers in that flock. They perched long enough for a look, but not for a pic.

Crummy, pic but the male Eider was still there on Xmas, and he brought some lady friends. They were getting seriously harassed by gulls while they were diving around the jetty.

Not sure what this is. Big, fleshy fruit, growingt among the roses and bittersweet in the dunes.

Need to look up whether this is the native or Asiatic kind. Growing all over the dunes at Hamo, so my guess is Asiatic...

Not too much in the way of novelty at Hamo a few days ago. Not that I would have noticed while trying to survive the bitter wind. We did find this perfect little jingle shell, though. I don't think I'd ever seen the pearly, translucent lower shell before.

Description

Ok, these were on a farm, but picture the situation: we'd been birding all day, in Livermore, and had only just seen our first Red-tailed Hawk and Kestrel, two of the most common birds around. Then we drive by a flock of guineafowl. Too absurd not to record.
