Monterey Fisherman's Wharf

We arrived at Monterey and went straight to Fisherman's Wharf early afternoon to confirm the following day's whale watching trip that we had booked on line from the UK some months earlier. On arival we were told that the forecast for the following day was not good and high winds were expected, that being the case there was a chance the trips that day could be cancelled. We would have to come back the following morning for confirmation.

In the meantime I had a quick look round the pier(wharf) and without much effort found:
Eared Grebe

Pigeon Guillimot

Savannagh Sparrow - a pair singing loudly from a small section of cover just before the wharf 

American Herring Gull

I have to admit I struggled with some of the gulls - another American Herring Gull?
Back at the hotel this Californa Towhee showed well in the car park
