Had a great bird day today. Where I was working, had a huge flock (~25) of Snow Buntings in the grape vines. (CHECK) They would fly in a group to another spot in the grapes and then 10 mins later do it all over again.

Then on the way home we had to stop and check something on the vehicle . . . I happen to stop at the harbor where I added 10 more species to my year list . . . .
