Seemed like lots of birds were feeding on the Seahare eggs...
Thanks Ken-ichi for the lead on this cool gathering. LOTS of mating in shallow waters. Hadn't seen these since Scuba days in Monterey Bay.
Babies, on sponge.
Flying along channel.
Unknown, couldn't be wild ginger
A few drakes.
Small flock, mostly immature.
Feeding and sunning.
Observed in the water from a distance, curiously watching me and my dog. The otter submerged, swam, and resurfaced several times and was easy to track because of a line of bubbles along his swim track
Heron was hunting at water edge until disturbed, then flew down the shore to another spot
On live oak
