Bird list

Pictures will follow, once I have time to edit them properly, but here's a list of what I saw in my brief time in Seaside/Monterey:

scrub jays
cormorants (including a white one)
great blue heron
some little ducks (I'm not sure yet which)
Canada geese
big white feral geese
pelicans!
blackbirds, redwinged and Brewer's
great-tailed grackles
house finches (or maybe purple?)
house (English) sparrows
crows
buzzards (vultures)
and, of course, gulls

Not bad for not really having a chance to look.

Saw lots of pelicans (and got a few photos) at the Half Moon Bay marina a couple years ago. Some were lurking near where fishermen were cleaning their catches, clearly hoping for handouts.

Here's a pelican I snapped in Monterey in March 2010.
