The saying "Birds of a feather flock together" does not seem to fit at the Balboa Pavilion in Newport Beach.  At the Pavilion, birds of different feathers hang out together!  The supply of fish in the bay and the fishing boats, bait tanks, and a high roof draws some birds out of their flocks to make their home with a variety of other types of birds in this small, intimate ecosystem ("melting pot").  The best bird watching is in the spring and early summer.
Rupert the Black Swan

Newport Beach's most famous bird, "Rupert" the Black Swan makes occasional appearances at the Balboa Pavilion.

This is a new web page.  More wildlife photos to come will include ducks, other sea birds, and other animals.

Note: In the bay under and adjacent to the Pavilion docks reside an abundance of underwater marine life: Calico Bass, Sand Bass, Spotted Bass, Croaker, Flounder, Perch, Barracuda, Smelt, Bat Rays,
Sardines, Anchovies, and other underwater fish and sea life.  Throw a dead fish head off the Pavillion dock, and you may see hundreds or thousands of smaller fish scavange until, eventually, the fish head is nothing but bones.
