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.
