Guided Bird Walk

Skip and I went on a guided bird walk at the Birding and Nature Center this morning. Robert Pritchard, whom we know from the Bay Area Birders and whose summer home is near us in Wilmot Creek, was our guide.
Great blue heron
Reddish egret
Mr and Mrs Mottled Duck
Red-eared slider
Roseate spoonbill
Blue-wing teal
Young gator
Green heron
Big gator
'Flotilla' of redheads + a few American wigeons
80% of the world's redheads pass through this area.

Snoozing brown pelicans
More redheads
Coot with lobed feet
Spotted sandpiper
We saw most of these this morning...
It was cool-ish and foggy when we first went out. Just as we were finishing 2 hours later, the sun came out and it is now warm. We may go back out later this afternoon, then follow that activity with happy hour drinks and snacks.
