A couple of House Sparrows hanging out at the beach begging for tacos.
This little House Sparrow checking around to make sure that no one notices it squeezing into the space between two boards under some eaves. I have no earthly idea how this bird is managing to grab onto a vertical wall. Kinda like a cat burglar.
After we stopped by Point Loma, we checked out Shelter Island on the way home. I thought that we would just see some gulls, but it was a total jackpot of birds! There were a ton of pelicans and gulls hanging out on the pier eating the remnants of the fish that fishermen were throwing away, as well as seals begging for leftovers. There were also several birds living in the large palms around the shore.
We were there around lunch time and the amount of birds was impressive so this is one of those rare places that have good birds mid-day. If you are ever wanting to see shorebirds up close, this is the place to be. They were just so unafraid of us.
