Hiking on the Tunnel Trail in Santa Barbara on Wednesday. I seen this bird continually flying above my head!






Earlier as I was sitting in my car, this lovely blue bird landed on my rear view mirror. At first it was funny to see him bouncing off and on a few times, between my window and rear view mirror.  It wasn't until after I realized how dark my tint is and that he could see himself and probably thought it was another blue bird he was looking at.

You 'saw' a Turkey Vulture and a Western Bluebird.
