The view from Point Conception

As a part of my job I see Point Conception on a regular basis. The sight is something that I don't think I can ever get sick of. I hope you feel the same way because here are some more photos from the majestic point (and trust me, there will me more in the future too!)

Some birding in Morro Bay

This post was a little delayed. It is from October 1.

On the first day of the government shutdown, I took some time to watch birds in Los Osos. It wasn't a very heavy photo day, but I did take some photos. Below are three photos of a lesser yellowlegs (Tringa flavipes) and one of a snowy egret (Egretta thula).
