Ghostly birds at the beach
As my car crossed the channel where the Santa Ana River flows into the ocean, two Black Skimmers flew low over PCH. A smile lit up my face. Those birds are so cool.
My 30-minute walk on the damp sand didn't reveal many birds other than the usual gull gang. I had the place mostly to myself, soaking up this scene.
Maybe the next scavenger hunt -- because that's what birding walks are, right? -- will reveal more avian prizes. Good luck with your hunts this weekend!
