Sunrise at Ramer Lake

Day two began spectacularly with a massive fly out from the Ramer Lake rookery. 

"The" Lesser Nighthawk at Finney Lake has been treating birders for over four years straight!.

The pipit search

We spent several hours walking several miles in search of Sprague's Pipits and longspurs. We missed on the pipits but had no lack of great birding and birds!

Mountain Bluebird

Bucking Best Lettuce

Vegetable harvest was in full swing putting food on America's tables from all across the Imperial Valley.

This adult Yellow-footed Gull was a great find on Obsidian Butte.

After watching the bird at a distance for awhile, it decided to come take a look at us!! 

It flew by us twice and then landed at the end of the same barnacle beach we were on!

The bird

Everyone had awesome looks in the scope and without it! 

It was so nice of the gull to join us for a group photo!!
