North County – October 9th

Last Saturday, we headed North and hit some hotspots along the coast.  I believe this was the first time that I’ve ever seen sun at Oso Flaco.   It was still early for the wintering ducks, but there was a small group of Cinnamon Teal and several Eared Grebes at the lake.  We even managed to find one American White Pelican and a lone Osprey at the far side of the lake.  However, the highlight was the nearly tame Raccoons we ran into.  I know that they mean trouble for the nesting Least Terns, but they are so darn cute!  After Oso Flaco, we headed up to Morro Bay to look for the Sea Otters.  Initially, it appeared that they weren’t around, but eventually they swam over to check us out.
