This blog records my experiences as a docent at the Piedras Blancas Elephant Seal Rookery on Highway 1 in California. Adult females and juveniles of both sexes return to the beach in spring to molt.

Elephant seals don't discriminate on the basis of size. This assortment rests in the morning mist of June Gloom. The large adult male is a new arrival, heralding his brothers soon to come for their annual molt.
I've written three books about raising traditional breed poultry in small flocks, How to Raise Chickens, How to Raise Poultry, and The Field Guide to Backyard Chickens. I blog about poultry at http://poultrybookstore.blogspot.com. I'm interested in all animals and the wildlife of California's Central Coast enchants me.
