Light-footed clapper rail (Ridgeway Rail)
We went to Bolsa Chica yesterday to find the Ridgeway Rail. After a few minutes, we spotted one and an hour later we saw a pair. There were a few black skimmers there but none were skimming the water.

We haven't had a chance to go out birding recently. Mike's been busy at work. Prado is nearby, so last weekend we stopped by. The best find was three baby barn swallows on a branch with the parents feeding them. The bullock's oriole was stunning. The vermilion flycatcher was stunning as usual.

We missed the first flight of the fledglings from last year's hummingburd nest, so we tried hard to take videos this year. Luckily, Mike called Chris on the phone just as the last one was leaving the nest, so there is a narration of sorts of this video.

After a scare last weekend, things have returned to normal at the hummingbird nest. They are growing and the mother feeds regularly. Sometimes, we think she purposely sits on the babies to prevent them from being rowdy.
