Ahh. California! More stunning scenery. More cool views. More great birds. What’s not to like? This is our 8th tour out of 11 one-week tours for this year. It was sunny and pleasant today. We got in a little birding this afternoon and evening after everyone arrived. We headed directly to Oakland to chase after the reported Bar-tailed Godwit. And Bam! We got it.
We came into this week with a total of 489 species for the year. Today we added 4 more species (Chestnut-backed Chickadee, California Towhee, Sooty Shearwater, and Bar-tailed Godwit). Our new total is now 493. 500 is looking better every day!
