The common birds near our home in Tiburon include crows, scrub jays, ravens, and seagulls. Nearby in the bay we see various ducks, geese, and wading birds such as Great Blue Herons, Snowy Egrets, Great Egrets, among others. In tall water-side grasses (like the water treatment ponds near Blackie's Pasture) we see RedWingedBlackbirds.
Eiche likes looking at pictures of birds and hearing bird calls on the World Wide Web. Barn owls were especially fascinating for a while. One place we go is ENature, http://www.enature.com/home/ .
