|Female Western Bluebird|
Yesterday, I spotted a house finch at the Slough.
Today, I walked the hills of Ocean Beach. The weather was overcast and the birds must have been hunkering down since it was also cold. On the way back, I stopped in at the Slough. There I saw a man and a small child feeding two Mallards some bread on the Famosa Boulevard side. As I walked toward them, they left. The man and child then went around to the front entrance to the Slough. Believe it or not, the ducks swam across the water to where these people were and followed them on the path. That was amazing to me. The ducks didn't come to me. as I had come around to the front and was just several feet from these people. Did the Mallards recognize their feeders?
Then, four White-crowned Sparrows hopped out of the bushes and pecked around for breadcrumbs. This gave me an opportunity to get a close-up of them, since they usually hide within the brush.
While I certainly don't know much about birds, I'm sometimes taken aback to view their almost human-like actions.
