It was nice to get a bit of sun today, in an otherwise gray weather week.
I followed the Bay Trail along Richardson Bay, where there were lots of
snowy egrets hunting for food in the marsh grass, past the Mill Valley
dog run and skate park, over the wooden bridge and up the hill toward
Tiburon. Nice views of the Bay, new green grass, trees, and Mount Tamalpais. I turned around to walk back before reaching the Highway 101 overpass.
27 snowy egrets; 29 crows; 83 ducks; 11 unidentified brownish
shorebirds (inclu. 1 tiny one); 3 black-necked stilts; 25 sea gulls;
4 Canada geese; 3 great egrets; 4 coots; 39 little brown jobs (LBJs);
1 starling; 1 great blue heron; 1 turkey vulture; and 1 whiffleball
