At times last night the rain was fierce. 4.75 inches in my rain gauge this morning. After a few morning sprinkles, the rain stopped. Made hast to Montana de Oro. The sea was roiling. It was the color of chocolate mocha coffee. There was a battle going on between the out going flow of the creek and the incoming surge of the ocean.
In spite of the tough conditions there was a Great Egret, a Greater Yellowleg, a Kingfisher, and a Song Sparrow singing his delightful song. A few Pigeon Guillemots have arrived, but none were in sight.
