The ducks were tame too

I spent an hour or so one morning before conference started scanning the San Diego River mouth where a Eurasian Wigeon had been seen for a few days about a week earlier. I didn't find it, but again found the birds amazingly tame. Usually dabblers have nothing to do with people approaching them, but with the active bike path they too were quite acclimated to people.

This Brandt's Cormorant was out in the ocean. The blue eye just seemed odd as did the nearly hookless bill.

Finally a shot of a Snowy Egret that was standing in one of the cages at SeaWorld hoping to steal a fish that the keepers would toss to the sea lions or whatever it was that was in this cage.
