Shots from visit to Monterey, CA earlier this month

I watched the cormorants and otters right from the hotel balcony

Harbor seals

Unfortunately the seals and sea lions often get tangled up in nets and ropes, which end up stuck around their necks. The local marine mammal rescue had been called out for this seal as well as a sea lion on the pier that same day!

Scrub Jay

Anna's Hummingbird


Townsend's Warbler

Black Turnstone

Just up the street from the hotel, I had fun watching these sea lions swimming and lounging.

More CA photos to follow soon!
