Coastside Trail Day 2: Half Moon Bay

Monday was cool and overcast all day.

During our 6-mile walk along a trailer park creek through the Ritz Carlton golf links to downtown Half Moon Bay, we saw 61 bird species. Amazing. There were many of the usuals — sparrows to crows, and a few surprises, too. Here are the special ones.

A great horned owl in a eucalyptus tree behind a trailer park.

A Hutton’s vireo in a 150-year-old cypress grove.

And, a Western bluebird on a coastal bluff in town.

Amazing what you can find when you take the time to look.

I’m walking this week on a Slow Adventure with Alvaro Jaramillo and a great group of birders.
