Irvine Marsh - Jul 31 A1 200-600

Here are some shots from this morning at the Irvine Marsh near the coast in Southern California. We had clouds rolling in but we made it out before the much needed rain.

The Grebe's have a rather broad breeding season so we still have some tucked away in the feathers on mom's back - while some others seem to be approaching maturity quickly.

The A1 does a great job of tracking fast moving skimmers and keeping them in focus as they skim toward you. This shot is interesting as it shows the minnows jumping out of the water to avoid being snapped up.

Papa Grebe shows up with a rather large meal - a couple of the young try to grab and swallow it but it's too big. These are tiny crops from across the pond

As we were in the parking lot and packing up - a birdwatching couple pointed out the Road Runner at the edge of the lot in the bushes - he was running around the bush in fast circles trying to scare out a meal. Here a caught him briefly before he gave up and moved on
