I’m on vacation with my wife this week in Sonoma, California. However, the birding never stops. I am up to my ears in western species, some of which I have seen before and some of which are new. I have some videos here of some of the western specialties from wine country.
We first attended the 4th of July Parade in Sonoma that featured this Grizzly Bear family, symbol of the Bear Republic.
