and Mormon Metalmark.
We found a bit of shade between the rocks and under a tree, which is where we found the California Sister. As the food came out, so did the Stellers Jays, they was a pair there. They had obviously been fed here before. There was also at least one 1st winter Western Tanager in the same tree.
The walk back, was pretty unproductive too, sadly. But, we did find a male Townsend Warbler and a male Northern Flicker too.
We left Pinnacles and drove to Monterey. On the road out, we found one of the birds we had hoped for, Yellow-billed Magpie.
Before we found our digs, and checked out the harbour ready for the morning. I noticed a small pond near the road, and suggested we check it out, if we have time. We did have some time and checked it out, which was a good shout, as it turned out! As we pulled into the car park, a Belted Kingfisher flew from a tree along the shore, but we didn't see it again.
On the pond were some American Coot, 3 California Gulls, 2 pairs of Pied-billed Grebe and 3 juvenile Red-necked Phalaropes. Also i managed to photograph a western Scrub-jay there too. So, a good stop.
Finally, before we went for food, there was an Annas Hummingbird in the car park of the motel.
