HMB Pelagic

Last Sunday J and I went on an 11 hour tour and the seas did get rough.  We joined Debi Shearwater on a Shearwater Journeys pelagic trip around Half Moon Bay.  The trip departed at 7am out of Pillar Point Harbor where we first checked out the jetties for shorebirds.  Since the sun had just risen, there was a warmth to the light giving the white Elegant Terns an orange glow.

More Wrens

There are about 80 species of wrens in 20 genera worldwide.  Wrens are mainly a New World Family, distributed from Alaska and Canada to southern Argentina, with most in the Neotropics.  There are 10 wren species in North America, which brings me to the featured photo: the Canyon Wren.
