Bodega Bay, Bodega Head, Doran Beach and numerous hiking trails in the area make for great bird watching! Especially if you can make it out there during the week when there’s not as much traffic. I pulled off the road to check out the birds in the bay.
There were quite a few great egrets and a few blue herons feeding just a short distance from the shore. But there also was a huge scoop of pelicans bobbing in choppy waters in-between skillful dives for a meal.
Have a great start to your week!
