Sprinkled among the hundreds and hundreds of Mallard Ducks were American Wigeon, Cinnamon Teal, Northern Shoveler, four seldom seen Gadwall, and a small flock of Ring-billed Gull.
From Los Osos Valley Road turned off on Turri Road, a five mile rural road that winds gently thru rolling farm land. In the area of the windmill and water trough, Western Meadowlark and Western Bluebird were close to the road, flitting after insects. Males of both species were sporting their brilliant breeding plumage. Another marvelous morning of birding the Central Coast.
