White Wagtail (M.a. ocularis)

So keeping up with the theme of California rarities, a White Wagtail was found by Bernardo Alps at Cabrillo Beach in San Pedro by Bernardo Alps while we were in Sacramento. Another bird that should probably be somewhere in Japan at this time of year. In fact, I was photographing them two years ago around this exact same time at a park in Tokyo. I kept my fingers crossed the bird would stick around a few days for me to get home from Sacramento to go look for the bird and as you can see, that it did.

Baby Kingbirds and Falcons

On a tip from Tom Starcic I headed over to Point Fermin Park located in San Pedro, CA where two baby Peregrine Falcons had recently fledged. When I got there I immediately spotted the adults flying around the bluffs and it didn’t take long to hear and spot the fledgling Falcons calling to their parents. Both of them were taking little leaps off the cliffs and landing a few yards away. Not quite ready for full flight but not long before they will be soaring alongside their parents. Nearby there were also two baby Cassin’s Kingbirds that had recently fledged as well and I got photos of the adults taking turns feeding them.
