Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 338: Bird Sightings

Several other noticeable local birds that provided colour and sound during our visit here include the zebra dove (similar to a mourning dove), rock dove (looks like a big white pigeon), and java sparrow (with a distinctive orange beak):
