I teach a lot of birding and natural history classes in the north San Francisco Bay area. I also guide visiting birders around the region, showing off the local birdlife. I do bird and wildlife surveys for multiple organizations, including marine mammal and seabird surveys off the west coast for NOAA.
Your photos are lovely. A lot of these creates by now I believe (at least where I am) are hibernating or have migrated. The past few days I've been seeing squirrels running around and birds flying in flocks. Wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
