9/3 thru 9/22/2015    We flew into San Francisco, CA and, after visiting with family, traveled up the coast to
Crescent City, CA near the Oregon border.  While we birded mostly on the coast, we did venture inland
to such places as Pinnacles National Park and the amazing redwood forests found in northern California.  
One great day was spent on a pelagic trip with Shearwater Journeys (Thanks Debi and all!) watching
whales and seeing tons of birds, many of which we don't get to see on the East Coast.

the first Elegant Tern dive a 10 out of 10 !
