One cool thing about the trip to California is the reaquaintance with birds common there and uncommon here. Grackles, Stellar’s Jays, and turkey vultures were all-but-ubiquitous there, but I hadn’t seen any of them in years. Makes me feel like I should read Aldo Leopold again.
P.S. Just in case you encounter, as I did, a well-meaning but ill-informed State Parks employee, here‘s an identification chart for large carnivorous birds in California.
