First time seeing these. :)
Bodega Head. Although these were my first "official" Wild Turkeys, I didn't add them to my life list (and to date, still haven't) since the California populations are non-native, and it seems silly (to me) to add an introduced bird to my life list when native populations are easily seen elsewhere on the same continent. Splitting hairs? Yes, but it's my life list and no one else's.
We found many of these a few weeks ago.
Thanks for your help on this one. :)
Pair in coffee shop parking lot.
First time ID-ing, so I hope I got it. :) Large flock feeding in this area.
Sad to see this recently deceased young one.
First time ID'ing this one. I think it's right. Four individuals here.
Haven't ID'd one before, but I think this is right. It was among the Buffleheads.
Estimated about 400 individuals in this part of the bay.
Watched it "fishing" by putting tip of beak in water to agitate it. It worked (in the 2nd pic it has a fish).
Helminthoglypta stiversiana (Cooper, 1875)
I saw this flower on the Tomales Point trail in the Point Reyes National Seashore park.
