HAPPY EARTH DAY FROM SAN DIEGO

HAPPY EARTH DAY FROM SAN DIEGO – All of the wild life here on the seashore, in the air & in the sea wish everyone a Happy Earth Day!  A special thanks to all who dedicate their lives to protecting Mother Earth every day all the time.  Shout out to Greenpeace and Sea Shepard, Audubon, Rendezvous Dive Adventures (ghost nets), Nan Daeschler Hauser, Pacific Marine Mammal Rescue, pelican rescue centers and everyone else who volunteer tirelessly to protect wildlife on Mother Earth and to educate everyone about living at one with nature.  In case I’ve forgotten to mention you, you know who you are.  Thanks very much!

BRANDT’S CORMORANT DANCING FOR A MATE

BRANDT’S CORMORANT IN LA JOLLA.  Mating season is upon us & the Brandt’s Cormorants lift their heads up & down while fluttering their wings & spreading their tail’s prettily.  This exposes their bright turquoise throat.  They gaze at us with their turquoise eyes, too.  We swoon.  

CORMORANTS WELCOME THE SUN – WINTER SOLSTICE

 

CORMORANTS ARE TRULY SUN WORSHIPING BIRDS – THEY SPREAD THEIR WINGS TO DRY OFF IN THE SUN AFTER DIVING DEEP FOR FISH.  WINTER SOLSTICE TODAY MEANS THE SHORTEST DAY OF THE YEAR & THE LONGEST NIGHT, BUT AFTER THIS MOMENT IN TIME THE DAYS WILL BE GETTING A BIT LONGER.  THE LIGHT RETURNS.
