Isn't this heavenly? Spending time hanging out around the yard and deck offered plenty of opporutnity to see western bird species.
Beyond the house you can see the scrub hills that are part of the Dipsea Trail we hiked on our first day in Stinson Beach. If you turn around from this spot, you will see the beach and Pacific Ocean.
This is my idea of a winter vacation (February)! Below are some of the birds that frequented the deck area where seeds were scattered.
The Spotted Towhee, above, was the first new bird I encountered and a steady visitor to the deck feeding station.
Next: Shorebirds on the beach!
