This was a trip that had been planned for a long time. So when the day February 26 arrived and rain threatened we went anyway. Despite dodging the rain we had a blast. The van was a riot. NO really a riot, it bounced, groaned, and shuttered. When the rains came it rain inside almost as hard as it rain outside. Still we had a blast saw lots of good bird. (Of course I’ve never seen a bad bird) Top of my list were the Bonaparte’s Gulls and Dark-eyed Juncos just to name a few.
