The Morro Coast Bird Festival held in January 2019 at Morro Bay, California had a huge selection of field trips, workshops, and classes to choose from. I chose two trips in a boat, a walking trip along Morro Bay, and some car caravan trips.

The brown pelicans are coming into their breeding colors, but I had never seen one fly with his huge head dangling down like this one.
