Maybe birds are your passion, maybe not. Me, I like watching them do their collective thing - but prefer to do so in comfort, with a hot coffee, and after having slept in past 8am.
Wherever you are on the scale of bird-lover, from 'meh' to giant-camera-on-tripod-toting, you'll love Morro Bay in the winter. Seabirds, shorebirds, falcons, hummingbirds, vultures and more (hundreds of species in all) are easy to spot within and near the town itself. So grab yourself a strong brew and take a quick and easy walk along the beach around Morro Rock, and see what you see.
Morro Rock itself hosts nesting Peregrine Falcons, which you may be lucky enough to see - or you can just watch the people watching the falcons. Either way, you'll love your visit.
