Paul Brewer photographed this Band-tailed Pigeon as the bird took off from a branch.

These large pigeons eat nuts, fruits and seeds. They travel in groups, so if you see one at your seed feeder, there are sure to be more soon. They have a soft cooing sound, almost like an owl, which you can hear at this link: https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Band-tailed_Pigeon/sounds

It's a sunny, breezy day on the beautiful Mendonoma coast!

I'd say pretty darn wonderful! Paul Brewer was the lucky person who saw a Bald Eagle in the morning, and Gray Whales in the afternoon. I love the first photo where it looks like the eagle is skimming the sandbar with his wing.

And then the Gray Whale.

Paul also photographed a calf, but that photo will be shared another time. Thanks to Paul for allowing me to share his photos with you here. To see much more of Paul's nature photography, here is his website: www.capturingnatureswonders.com

Paul Brewer's wife, Jacquie, called out for him to get his camera quick! There in a tree by their Gualala home was an immature Bald Eagle.

Robert Keiffer and Ron LeValley took a look at Paul's photo and determined this is a one-year old Bald Eagle, an immature. They can fly great distances, so we have no idea if this eagle was born near here, or somewhere much further away.

Here is a photo Chris Beach took of the two mature Bald Eagles, presumably a mated pair, that have been thrilling us with sightings by the mouth of the Gualala River.

And we have news that there is a confirmed Bald Eagle nest north of Gualala, on private, remote land. I was told there was an active nest last year, and again this year. Perhaps we will have a nest discovered in the watershed of the Gualala River too. These are exciting developments for those of us who love these magnificent birds of prey.

Last Wednesday, when storm clouds were clearing out, a double rainbow appeared in the late afternoon. Rozann Grunig captured it soaring over woods and into the Pacific Ocean.

Paul Brewer also photographed it, albeit from a different location.

Today we have blue skies. Tomorrow the last in a series of storms is expected in the afternoon. 75.53 inches have fallen this season at our place in Anchor Bay. A "normal" rainfall year is 50 inches. Bye, bye drought!

Thanks to Rozann and Paul for allowing me to share their rainbow photos with you here.

On Valentine's Day, Paul Brewer photographed this lovely scene.

The colors of sunrises are so fleeting, but can be so very beautiful.

A storm is approaching the coast. Yesterday we had sunny, warm weather, a balm after all the rain. But we have a storm coming in late tonight. Saturday is predicted to be rainy. Well, it's still winter, after all!
