  1. Gyrfalcon Friday afternoon Feb. 8th. LINK
    DATE: Feb 9, 2018 @ 10:08pm, 6 month(s) ago
    This afternoon (2.8.18), at 3:15ish
    
    Jeff Miller and myself spotted the GYRFALCON found in Monterey
    County in the Salinas River State Beach Potrero sand dunes.
    
    
    The bird was perched in the tucks and folds of the sand dunes to the left as we
    walked south using the middle trail through the dunes. We think the falcon was
    perched somewhere in this east slope of the dunes above a willow patch area
    where it has been reported. It flushed and headed west then turned and flew in
    front of us low with quick deep wing beats showing its broad pointed wings.Giving
    us good opportunity to view the large size, streaky breast, and long tail. Enjoy
    the good beach weather Rich
