A large number of Pacific Mole Crabs were being fed upon at Southern most cove of Stinson Beach by gulls: Heerman's, Mew and Ring-billed in the tide wash. Right behind this in as little as one foot deep water was a flock of 15 surf scoters diving and also likely feeding upon these curious crustaceans. (c) 2014 Durrell D. Kapan

Observed this western bluebird in a pyracantha tree in Bayfront Park, a dog park in Mill Valley, CA. It appeared to be traveling with a flock of Pacific slope flycatchers. I didn't have a camera with me, only an iPhone, so the image is poor, but the bluebird against the red berries was exquisite to behold.
