On a recent visit to Santa Cruz we drove down to Elkhorn Slough, a great place for birdwatching.
A dispute brought my attention to this Curlew, he had a crab and the Godwit wanted him to share.
It's always interesting to watch birds maneuver their catch so they can swallow it.
He just can seem to be left in peace for his meal.
This Snowy egret was also looking for a meal.
This loon was uncooperative, every time I tried to get in a position where he wouldn't be back lit he would dive.
When we finished birdwatching at Elkhorn we went to Moss Landing State Beach where dozens of sea otters were floating.
Hubby got some great video of the activity.
