BAM Parking - Marin County  2020

Wandering around the Terra Linda Kaiser medical facilities in late December when I saw these mysterious signs. No idea what "BAM" stands for . . . Google is of no help.

Monday Phoebe Blogging

 

Phoebe, Pool - Marin County  2020

Phoebe, Pool Railing - Marin County  2020

I had spotted this phoebe (technically a Black Phoebe) down at the pool several times, but never had the requisite camera/lens combo with me. But this time I did! An Olympus E-M1II with a 75-300mm zoom lens. Higher noise level than I'd like, but acceptable.

"The Black Phoebe is a dapper flycatcher of the western U.S. with a sooty black body and crisp white belly. They sit in the open on low perches to scan for insects, often keeping up a running series of shrill chirps. . . .  Look for them near any water source from small streams, to suburbs, all the way to the salt-sprayed rocks and cliffs of the Pacific Ocean."

I guess that the backyard pool can be considered a water source! (Actually, I've seen a phoebe catching bugs at Point Lobos.)

Courtyard

 

Courtyard (Dominican University) - Marin County  2020

The Nikon Z5 has a 35mm film format . . . somewhat "wide-screen." Many times I'll crop the photo at the edges, but I could utilize the wider format for this particular photo.
