Tons of Birds

Sand City, CA, United States
17 Kudos
If you want to see a ton of birds that are not pigeons, you can go to the end of the pier at San Carlos Beach in Monterey. There is a locked gate preventing you from walking out onto the rocks. I'm not sure if the gate is to protect the birds or because the pier is dangerous or because it is Coast Guard property. You can still see the massive number of black birds hanging out on the pier through the gates. I don't even know what these birds are called but it is refreshing to see something other than a a seagull and a pigeon.
