Says Phoebe in Petaluma

Mike had business in Palo Alto, CA, last Friday, so Chris came along to make a long weekend of it in Sonoma County wine country. Chris got to see the endangered California clapper rail (not pictured here) at the Baylands at sunrise Saturday. Although most of the time was spent in wineries and restaurants, there was still time to spot a few birds on Sunday AM and on the way back Monday. We got to add the oak titmouse to our life list, but he doesn't have the fancy colors or eye makeup as does the tufted titmouse we see at home in New Jersey.
