A mini vacation, and some more fun birds!

We took a bit of a short mini-vacation with our great friends Scott and Monica, who live on their boat SV Scott Free. They are getting ready to move the boat back to the northwest, so our time with them, at least here in the Sea of Cortez is limited.

I snuck away early one morning to explore the local estuary in San Jose De Cabo, one of the last remaining spots that the Belding's Yellowthroat lives. I saw a few, but did not get any kind of great photo.

I did in fact get to spend quite a bit of time with the Common Moorhen, or Gallinule depending on which bird guide you look at.

The parents were just starting to let the little one's out of the nest, and out exploring.

MY, what big feet you have such a little thing! I guess you will grow into them soon enough.

The local government, and the university have done a wonderful job of setting aside some of this land for exploration, and viewing. They have built some observation towers, along with a great walkway to follow along the water way.
