One at a time…

Everything seems to come at once.

The Central Coast has had its share of excitement in the last few days. First of all, two of the three falcon chicks at Shell Beach have fledged.

Piedras Blancas Lighthouse has three new falcons. The south side of Morro Rock still has only one visible chick. The falcons on the north side of Morro Rock have not been seen as yet. Mostly, because of the tall vegetation in front of the eyrie, but prey items continue to be taken into the nest site by the adults.

I have been trying to stay on top of all the new birds and stories and then I get an orca attack upon a young grey whale right in front of Morro Rock.

I have a ringside seat from where I usually perch in the south parking lot. More about all these stories and the whale kill with photos in my next installment. I will go more into depth in each of the stories, one at a time.

Happy trails, Bob

Item:  AZ-HI-AZ-I-AM is a local surf shop in Morro Bay, CA. More photos of the orcas may be seen at his website.

      Thanks for mentioning us on “Good Clean Fun.” The peregrine falcons are always at Morro Rock, Morro Bay, CA. Bob, with his spotting scope, is here everyday to show the peregrines to birders and interested visitors.
