There’s more whales in the Monterey Bay this season than we can remember! Come out to Sand Rock Farm and take an ocean adventure with Sanctuary Cruises.
Sitting at the dining table enjoying breakfast any time from December through early spring, our guests have an amazing experience. Waves of both Lesser and American Goldfinches swoop down from their perches on the giant oak next to the house to enjoy the thistle from the tiered finch feeder outside the window. They boldly jostle for a spot on the metal rungs and peck away. If a guest walks over to the window, they fly away in a wave as if you lift a hand to say good by. Whether the Goldfinches are really pausing here to refuel on their way from Canada to Mexico, we are not sure, but the bright yellow breasted visitors are not so abundant once summer arrives.
