Morro Bay Ground Squirrels

The next stop on last weekend’s trip was Morro Bay.  A lot of kids were there feeding the ground squirrels and completely ignoring the group of sea otters floating near shore.  Completely habituated (i.e dependent) to people, the squirrels would walk right up to you and expect handouts.  Other highlights of the stop were watching a Pelagic Cormorant fish in the bay and a Pigeon Guillemont preen.  I was only able to get record photos of these birds, so will have to go back again and try again.
