What a relaxing way to start or wind down a day… going for a walk on the beach in Santa Barbara. I love to watch the willets in the surf, running in the wet sand just outside the waves. In addition to willets, the Santa Barbara coastal areas attract brown pelicans, large numbers of other shorebirds (such as Blackbellied Plover, Whimbrel, Long-billed Curlew, Marbled Godwit, and Sanderling), egrets, various type of gulls, and terns.
