We have had quite a hot spell in Morro Bay, 85°F on October 17th with offshore winds in the morning up to 20 mph. Then it changes to on shore around noon with a cooling breeze off the 52°F Pacific Ocean.
We are in full migration mode of raptors and songbirds right now. Reports of some that are not frequent visitors are the Harris Hawk, Common Cuckoo, Zone-tailed Hawk.
This year’s Morro Bay Bird Festival in January will see Cleve Nash and his wonderful photography along with the Pacific Coast Peregrine Watch sharing a booth. Cleve and I will be entertaining birders at “the Rock” while Heather man’s the booth at the Morro Bay Community Center. Don’t miss this four day event over the Martin Luther King Holiday.
Happy trails, Bob
